COP Day 8

Our final mini-side event!  A group of youth from Indonesia joined us for a climate change game! 

I attended the Opening Ceremony for the High Level Segment!  I was very fortunate to get a ticket since very few seats were reserved for civil society.  It was inspiring to hear speeches by the COP president and a representative speaking on behalf of each of the negotiation blocs.  The Prime Minister of Kenya is in this photograph.  He spoke about the need to move forward in the negotiations because "we owe it to our children and humanity in general." He also stated, "Mountains cannot meet.  But people do.  Let's join hands in partnership for future generations."
