Youth Leadership Camp for Climate Change 2017

UNESCO Office, Jakarta and UN CC:Learn (One UN Climate Change Learning Partnership) will organize the “Youth Leadership Camp for Climate Change 2017” in collaboration with the Climate Reality Project Indonesia and with the support from Youth for Climate Change Indonesia (YFCC).

The program is a 3-day youth camp for a total of 150 committed youth (between 17-25 y.o) to provide them with an understanding of climate change in agriculture and energy, marine and fisheries and forestry sectors. The camp will be held in three locations, including a field trip to UNESCO’s site in each location:

  1. Cipanas, West Java, with a visit to Cibodas Biosphere Reserve, 4-6 February 2017
  2. Bukit Lawang, North Sumatra, with a visit to Gunung Leuser National Park, a Biosphere Reserve and part of Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra (TRHS), 18-20 February 2017
  3. Bandar Lampung, Lampung, with a visit to Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park, part of TRHS, 24-26 February 2017.

The camp will also provide youth with training materials to improve their communication skills and confidence, covering communication and social media strategy (including movie-making workshop), peer education strategy, and outbond training programme, as well as peer education skills to promote climate change issues among their peers.

After the camp, the participants (in a group of 5) are expected to conduct peer forum where they share their knowledge on climate change with their peers. And finally, the top 3 participants will be selected for participating in the Tribal Climate Camp in the USA on 31 July- 4 August 2017, sponsored by UN CC:Learn.
