So yet again it’s been a while, sorry for the lack of posts! Though I promised blogs from those in the know while I worked on my dissertation, exciting things have been happening here in the UK that have kept all my climate friends busy. From sunny days spent at climate camp, to launching the 1010 campaign with a huge bang, the climate movement in the UK has really been going full steam ahead.

But now my dissertation is in (I can hardly believe it!) and it’s back to the climate grindstone full-time for me. So let’s get down to business. What’s been going on with me and the negotiators?

Well this last weekend we had the second training weekend for our UK youth delegation. This is a team of 24 inspiring young people brought together by the UKYCC to go to Copenhagen. We planned, we strategised, we ate a bit of curry and we wrote ‘to do’ lists pages long.

But why do you need to know this?

Because before, during and beyond Copenhagen, we as young people have one mission.

A mission so eloquently put by my great friend and fellow youth delegation coordinator Kirsty….

A mission to UNF*C* the world!

(see what we did there…)

UNF*C* verb: to correct a F***ed situation; to undo a ‘botch up’ or ‘bungle’; to reverse acts of stupidity or carelessness; to tidy a mess made by others

We as young people are concerned for our future, and we don’t want to leave it in other peoples hands!
