While Ginger was busy Camille did also participate to the Youth Environmental Assembly to the UN Environment Programme.
The YEA is the largest youth-led environmental event in the world and the official youth forum for the fifth United Nations Environmental Assembly (UNEA). This youth event will include a Regional Consultation for Europe so that youth can discuss the work of UNEP and UNEA with particular reference to European issues and situations.
UNEP MGCY has organized the YEA to allow youth the opportunity to debate the summit’s agenda items and the most urgent environmental issues of the moment, and the outcomes of the YEA will then be voiced to government ministers at UNEA. The sessions over the five days will also include dialogues directly with environmental ministers, breakout discussions on thematic aspects of UNEP’s work, negotiation preparations for agenda items of UNEA, as well as expert panel discussions on topical environmental issues and UNEP processes.
Camille had no chance to speak out but he did learn a lot and we hope his experience will be use soon.
