Dates: May 28th and 29th, 2008
Time: 9.30 am onwards
Venue: Teen Murti Bhawan
The two-day summit aims to bring together the youth of Delhi (Class 12th – 30 Years) to discuss, debate, share concerns and find innovative, out-of-the-box solutions to the pressing problems being faced by Delhi, which will only worsen in the wake of climate change. Individuals falling outside this age bracket are most welcome to attend as observers. Participants are to pre-register for the event while observers can spot-register themselves. The idea is to draft out a Delhi Youth Charter on Climate – youth’s vision for the city they will soon inherit. The Charter will be presented to the key decision makers in the city.
The first day (May 28th) will see the inauguration of the Summit by Professor Mridula Mukherjee, Director, NMML, Mr. Bittu Sahgal, Editor, Sanctuary Magazine and Dr Leena Srivastava, Executive-Director, TERI – followed by splitting the day into four sessions, on
- Urban Planning, and
- Energy & Transport
A play titled “Climate Change and Health by Jamghat (Sponsored by the World Health Organisation, WHO) will be played at 1400 hours.
The second day (May 29th) will be a capacity building session, the discussion on the draft charter and the submission of the Charter to Mr. J.K. Dadoo, Secretary, Environment, Forest & Wildlife, Govt. of NCT of Delhi and Chairperson, Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC).
All concerned citizens, activists, academicians, students, teachers and other professionals are requested to attend the Summit.
