Anthropogenic climate change is the greatest threat in the history of our species, and we are not moving fast enough to stop it. The UNFCCC negotiations are where world leaders decide what we will do (or fail to do) about climate change, as a planet.

In response to slow progress on this most critical issue, we have been selected as part of a team of SustainUS Agents of Change delegates to the COP19 negotiations of the UNFCCC. http://sustainus.org/12-agents-of-change/781-meet-the-sustainus-cop19-delegation

Since its establishment in 2004, the SustainUS Agents of Change Program has sent over 500 young people to conferences on climate change, sustainable development, social development, women, and biological diversity. SustainUS delegates work with hundreds of young people from across the globe to advocate for robust environmental and social policies. We are youth from all over the United States, who unite to build a future in which all people recognize the equality and interdependence of social, economic, and environmental sustainability.

COP19 will be held in Warsaw, Poland from November 11 to 22, 2013.http://unfccc.int/meetings/warsaw_nov_2013/meeting/7649.php. SustainUS Delegates will educate themselves and their communities, develop policy priorities, develop skills in effective lobbying, and engage the broader youth population in action related to international climate policy.

More of the specifics of what we are/will be doing include:

We are your nations' environmental advocates, your university alumni, your students, your classmates, your friends, your sons, your daughters, your boyfriends, your girlfriends, or your neighbors, and we need your help to attend the UNFCCC Negotiations in Poland this November.

Any donation helps!

SustainUS COP19 Youth Delegation
