10th November - COP22 - 4th day = Youth involvement & the French language
This is our 5th quick summary of highlights from COP22 in Marrakech.
Climate change doesn't just cross political borders, it transcends generations too. The incoming generation are sometimes typified as angry and frustrated as their idealistic world vision runs into the rear of the lumbering establishment that is the reality of their parents and grandparents. But this is perhaps a view from the 'developed' world where education and opportunity has been accessible to us all for a few generations.
