Climate Change - Call for delegates to COP21, Paris and Intersessional Meeting in June, Bonn

Dear MOs, dear activists,

Would you like to represent FYEG at the UN Climate Change summit in December & the intersessional meeting in June?

As you know, 2015 is a critical year for international climate change negotiations. Paris will be hosting COP21, the United Nations Climate Change summit, which aims to create a new international agreement on fighting climate change.

During this year, FYEG will campaign and mobilise activists throughout Europe to push towards a successful outcome of the summit. At the same time, we will send an official delegation to the summit to follow the discussions, develop links with other groups and represent the voice of the Young Greens throughout Europe. These delegates will work closely with the FYEG Climate Campaign Team and the EC, and will be asked to feedback reports on these events.

When and where?

“Preparation summit”: 4-14 June, Bonn (Germany) and COP21: 30 Nov-11 Dec, Paris (France) FYEG will fundraise in order to cover the delegates’ travel and accommodation, but it needs a common effort to be successful in fundraising. Please bear in mind that, despite of all our efforts, it might occur that delegates will have to fundraise themselves partly or totally the costs of transportation and accomodation.

To apply to the delegation, please send an email to joan@fyeg.org and marie@fyeg.org with the following:

- Name, country and organisation you are a member of

- A short summary of previous work on climate change

- Your motivation to be part of the delegation

- A copy of your CV

Deadline for applications: 15th January 2015

If you apply and are selected, you will be expected to attend the COP21 summit in December and, if possible, the intersessional in June. Please make sure you can attend these meetings, and highlight any possible limitations in your application.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact marie@fyeg.org, joan@fyeg.org or office@fyeg.org.

Change the system, not the climate!

Green greetings,
