On June 10-17th 2013, young leaders will converge in Istanbul, Turkey for a landmark gathering. 500 grassroots climate activists and leaders from around the world will meet, train, share skills and stories, and prepare for the next phase of the global climate movement.
After leaving Turkey, they will fan out across the world to catalyze powerful national movements calling for bold climate action. Through a series of national summits and trainings, they will unleash a new wave of climate activism.
Are you a young climate leader? Do you want to attend? There’s an application process, and a deadline on January 4th, 2013.
Candidates will be selected based on their previous work for the climate movement, and/or their future plans, as well as experience in online and offline campaigning, communication, fundraising, mobilizing, networking, and movement building. Willingness and capacity to organize national or regional events in your home country will be a massive plus! Thereís a lower age limit of 18, but no strict upper limit.
"Climate change is the single biggest thing humans have done to this planet. The one thing that needs to be bigger is our movement to stop it." – Bill McKibben, 350.org founder.
