Help Jahdiel and Mari get to the UN Climate Talks
Organized by: Mari Brunner
EVENT DATE Dec 01, 2014
About our Volunteer Work:
Jahdiel and Mari have been working with the youth chapter of the Sierra Club for the last 2-3 years on the International Climate Campaign, which works to represent the voices of US youth at the UN Climate Talks. We believe that as young people, we have the capacity and understanding to advocate for climate justice and equity in the climate negotiations and international climate policy.
This year, we will be in Lima, Perú working with youth from around the world and nongovernmental organizations to put pressures on negotiators to come up with strong climate action. A big part of what we do is trying to give people back home a glimpse as to what is happening at the conference and in international climate policy through blog posts, stories and videos that we post online. For more information, check out the Sierra Student Coalition International campaign website at https://www.sierraclub.org/InternationalCampaign.
Why we Need Your Help:
Everything we do with the Sierra Student Coalition is volunteer work, so we have to pay our own way to Lima. As graduate students, we need all the help we can get. We need to raise money for air fare, accommodations, food, travel in Lima, and funds for emergency expenses (like medical expenses).
Thank you for your support! ¡Muchas Gracias por su apoyo!
