Welcome to my blog about youth and climate change. My name is Emily Rodriguez, and I will be participating in the UN Climate Change Conference, COP15, in December 2009. I embark on my journey to Copenhagen on December 2. The Conference takes place from 7-18 December, 2009.
I will serve as part of a delegation of young women to represent the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). I am excited for the upcoming opportunity to represent WAGGGS and Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) in Copenhagen.
I will write frequent posts during the conference and continue to write updates with news about the progress of politics towards climate change after the conference. I am interested in learning about the potential impact WAGGGS can have on climate change. I will critically think about how girls and young women can be productive in their local communities to make a difference.
