As the curtains rise on the Third International Climate Champions Camp, 35 Climate Champions from 15 Countries (Northern Ireland, Ireland, UK, USA, Finland, Slovenia, Japan, Bangladesh, Norway, Sweden, Uganda, Nepal, Maldives, Sri Lanka and India) will start arriving at Goa starting 15 January. At the camp, Champions will be exposed to various facets of the fragile ecosystem of Goa where they will learn, network, share and better understand environmental impacts due to climate change and current mitigating initiatives undertaken.
They will be interacting with scientific and social experts and will also be visiting scientific Institutions like the National Institute of Oceanography (NIO) and Goa Science Centre. Towards the end of the camp, they will pen down their views and suggestions in the form of a “Goa Declaration” which will be released to the media at the close of the camp.
Sharing their experiences and staying connected with the world they will be blogging and tweeting from the camp. We welcome you to be part of this experience by following them online.
