Agents of Change is now accepting applications to join the SustainUS youth delegation to the fifteenth session of the Conference of the Parties to the Climate Change Convention and fifth meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (COP15 and COP/MOP5), which will be in Copenhagen, Denmark from December 7-18, 2009. COP15 will determine the future international policy on climate change, and youth must make their voice heard. Between now and December, youth from across the globe will organize to bring a sense of urgency and rationality to the meeting. The future of the UNFCCC process is up for debate and with it the future of international action to stop climate change. If the UNFCCC cannot respond to the urgent conclusions contained in the report of the IPCC, the ability of the international mechanism to respond to global challenges might become irrelevant.
Download the application and send your responses in the form of a single Word or PDF document to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications must be received by 5:00 pm EDT on Monday, June 1, 2009. Incomplete applications, or those not compiled into a single document, will not be considered. Applicants will be notified of their selection by the middle of July and will be required to confirm their involvement shortly after notification. Please make sure you include all sections of the application. You may be asked to interview in the course of this selection process. If you have any questions, contact AoC Coordinators Lauren Nutter and Jennie Hatch at email@example.com.
