Org seeks northern youth for online forum
Participants become eligible for free trip to April 2012 IPY conference in Montreal
Are you a youth from the North who wants to make your voice heard?
Would you like to participate as a northern youth panelist at the International Polar Year Conference in Montreal, April 2012?
These are questions that the International Institute for Sustainable Development in collaboration with Schools on Board have put out to draw youth to an online discussion forum aimed at northern youth.
Topics include knowledge, change and action, an announcement about the event says.
From Nov. 28 to Dec. 12 youth can log on to www.ookpik.org, a website run by the International Institute for Sustainable Development, and join in the discussion.
Northern youth who participate will be eligible to join a group of youth who will travel on an-all-expenses paid trip to next April’s conference in Montreal, called “From Knowledge to Action.”
