Conference of Youth 12: A Photographic Journey

Yesterday we arrived at the COY12 event in Marrakech Morocco! We networked, flash mobbed, and had a booth set up with GS Green Generation. Many people were interested in our program, and also the initiatives that our members are part of; Earthbound, Bye Bye Plastic Bags, Kids Cut Palm Oil, BioBus and GS Green Generation.

In the past two days we have also set up a campaign called ALL Ages ALL access. This is a campaign to allow all people access to the COP22 Green Zone which is a civic space traditionally open to everyone to participate in the climate events. Please visit our Avaaz petition and sign to help us get ALL ages ALL access.
