Calling all Young Climateers: Join the Climate Advocacy Institute this June
Are you sitting around wondering what to do this June? Are you wanting to get involved in the growing international youth climate movement, and lend a hand to save the planet?
Well, we’ve got your ticket!
350.org and our allies are organizing a 3-week in-depth Climate Advocacy Institute that will equip you with the skills and connections you need to fight global climate change. The Institute will be held in Deçemko, a private resort on the Aegean coast of Turkey.
From June 28 to July 18, 2009, our team of experienced organizers will lead workshops on everything from the most recent climate science to campaign strategy to online communications.
350.org staff from Lebanon, the United States and Europe will work with participants over three weeks to develop basic organizing skills. In addition, the Climate Advocacy Institute offers the following three tracks to choose from:
* Debate & Argumentation
* Journalism & New Media for Advocacy
* Performance & Art Advocacy
If you're thinking the Climate Advocacy Institute might be too intensive for you, have no fear! This incredible opportunity is jam-packed with exciting extra-curricular trips to major historic sites, sports games and lots of fun after-hours activities.
You'll meet and get to hang out with dozens of young climate activists, and become part of the growing network of 350.org youth activists worldwide.
You can even get University credit for taking part! There are only 100 spots available, and the deadline to apply is April 8, so there's no time to lose.
PS - Please share this with any friends or family you think might be interested in coming!
