Canadian Youth Delegation to Attend UN Biodiversity Conference in Japan

The RCEN and the Youth Caucus are pleased to announce the Official Canadian Youth Delegation going to the tenth Conference of the Parties (COP-10) of the Convention on Biological Diversity taking place in Nagoya, Japan, from October 18-29.

Given that 2010 is the United Nation’s International Year of Biodiversity and August 2010 marks the beginning of the United Nation’s International Year of Youth, we applaud Canadian youth’s commitment to both of these years and, more importantly, youth participation in discussions that will shape our future. Get to know the delegates here, and show your support by buying a t-shirt to help them fundraise for the trip!
