COP Day 4: Youth and Future Generations Day!

The WAGGGS delegation encourages you to join the young women representing WAGGGS at COP16 in an action song TODAY!  This song is very popular. It was first sung by youth at a Climate Change conference in Canada in 2005, and was performed by youth, including the WAGGGS delegation, at the 2009 climate change conference in Denmark.

Our WAGGGS delegation at COP16 will sing this song at COP16 TODAY as part of Young and Future Generations (Yo-Fu-Ge) Day.  We will join about 200 youth in singing this song at the Climate Change Conference and invite you to join in by performing this action song in your own community today, too!
