COP 18: The Before and the Beginning
Thinking back to before COP….
Five days after arriving in Doha and it feels like a month. Last Thursday night I arrived late in Doha airport and had my first drive to the hotel. As tired as I was I was woken up by the fast and abrupt driving of the shuttle driver. Once in the hotel it was great to see fellow Sierra Student Coalition Delegates and have some nutella midnight snacking. The past weekend start with a group of us participating in the 8th Conference of the Youth. This is the International Youth meet up before the Conference of the Parties where we not only strategize but create meaningful relations with each other. The agenda of the weekend consisted of big group anti oppression session, workshops, regional meeting and introduction to the Youth NGO (YOUNGO) group. See below the reactions of some SSCers who attended this inspiring event:
