Conference of Youth (COY)!

Some of WAGGGS delegates with Bill McKibbon.  Bill is the founder of 350.org, author of Eaarth, and a strong supporter of youth in climate change educational activities.

Bill McKibbon was the keynote speaker at the Conference of Youth!   He encouraged youth to speak up and take action on climate change issues. 
Thanking all of the youth who voluntarily helped organize COY and who helped volunteered as translators. COY was held in both English and Spanish, so all presentations were translated to enable Spanish-speaking youth to engage in the climate change discussions.

Mexican dancers during snack break.  Beautiful dresses! 

Learning about working groups one evening at COY. 

Sitting together with all of the youth and learning about the role of youth at COP16.
