At the UN was Special Fellow for above topics at UNITAR and for three years tried to open the UN to such matters.|
#2: Considering the practical aspects of the UN Secretary-General's Climate Summit and the location of the SE4AII Headquarters in Vienna, we think Pincas Jawetz is an ideal participant for civil society involvement in the proceedings- because of experience and location. Mr. Jawetz worked planning for agricultural crops to answer the need for octane, when moving to unleaded gasoline. This was an interdisciplinary task that called for the investigation of farm policy and petroleum technology debunking negative myths in both areas. His work showed inter-linkages that help the economy at large. He is a strong believer that a Watt saved is worth more than a Watt produced and talks of Nega-Watts and Nega-Barrels. He believes the greatest yet uncovered source of energy is the energy of the sea, and that leapfrogging with new technologies help communities that otherwise would be chained to old and dying technologies. He found wisdom with old traditional knowledge in yet underdeveloped counties.
|#1. Born in Chernivtsi in what is now the Ukraine. Came to the US in 1962 - has degrees in Physical Chemistry International Management and an MBA. Was Consultant on Energy Policy active in Biofuels - in many countries and eventually volunteered on a one dollar/year basis to try to introduce aspects of the economics of alternate energy to the UN. Is ready to re-involve himself in these topics now again. He is a resident of Vienna, Austria now. Would like to be one of the 20 non-funded participants at the Summit.|
#2: Pincas Jawetz, an Austrian, born in Romania in an area that is now Chernivtsi in the Ukraine, is an Applied Physical Chemist with degrees also in International Management and an MBA. He moved to the US in 1962, and since 1972 worked on energy policy in the US and overseas. When his wife retired as well they made Vienna the main residence. In the 1970s worked on the potential supply of alternate fuels replacing petroleum, and was on the Hudson Institute team that recommended the creation of the Synfuels Corporation in the US, but then, with Brazil helped the introduction of Biofuels. Realizing the impact of the fuel economy on the environment, he moved early on to a Green approach to the subject. From the 1992 Rio Conference on he tried to figure out energy policies that take into account the potential of energy from renewable sources as the main theme of Sustainability and the potential of Sustainable Development. At the UN, Mr. Jawetz was a special fellow at UNITAR dealing with Renewable Energy. At UNIDO he participated as the policy person on Ethanol, and at IIASA he enlarged on the Gas study by including biogas. For the UN Energy Study he helped change the traditional energy triangle by putting gas on top of the triangle and talking of oil and coal as the energies of the past thus debunking the myth that there was an oil and gas industry at the time the oil industry had no interest in gas.
|1. Wrote "A Promptbook on Sustainable Development For The World Summit In Johannesburg" August 2002, on behalf of The Center For UN Reform Education (CURE).|
2. Wrote the policy parts in "Fuel From Farms" February 1980 for The Solar Energy Research Institute (SERI) of the US Department of Energy.
3. Wrote "The Potential Of A Desert Economy" April 1986 on behalf of UNITAR, as contribution to the UN Conference on Africa.
4. Wrote the chapter on Arid Lands for the Club of Rome volume - "Africa Beyond The Famine".

The development sectors are already playing an important role in advocating for cuts in greenhouse gas emissions or adaption but some change is now inevitable. Attention must also focus on how society and nature can adapt in a changing climate. This aim is to improve understanding about emissions or adaptation to climate change within the development community. In particular, it is designed to stimulate broader engagement and debate on key issues around development and climate change adaptation, which have been mostly restricted to the ‘climate change community’.|
Emissions or Adaptation is a broad concept covering actions by individuals, communities, private companies and public bodies such as governments. Successful adaptation can reduce vulnerability by building on and strengthening existing coping mechanisms and assets, targeting climate change vulnerability with specific measures, and integrating vulnerability reduction into wider policies.Working with partners and communities at grassroots level also puts development agencies in a position to raise levels of awareness about climate change and stimulate discussion on climate change issues. Many poor communities, and particularly those with limited education and access to information, do not connect the climatic changes they are already experiencing with a global phenomenon, nor are they aware of potential future changes. Raising basic awareness of the causes and impacts of climate change is crucial to efforts to empower households and communities so they can adapt and increase their resilience to current and future climates.The development NGOs and their partners play a central role in supporting poverty reduction of vulnerable households and communities at the grassroots level. The experiences of these groups in adapting to variations in climate are crucial for informing climate change adaptation efforts at national and international levels. The development agencies can help to bring such knowledge to inform policy-making and planning.

Ms. Egland has been the chair of the Environmental and Climate Justice Committee for the past 3 years and has represented the Association at a Women's Day Event on Environment at the White House, at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference of Parties in Warsaw, most recently at a forum on Energy and Environment in Port Hartcourt, Nigeria, and many more events As a survivor of Hurricane Katrina and as a resident of the Gulf Coast which is in the US hurricane zone as well as being under threat of imminent sea level rise impacts, Ms. Egland is on the front lines of the effects of climate change. For the past two years, she has led local efforts on both mitigation and adaptation sides of climate change with a robust clean air campaign focused on the coal fired power plant that sits less than 3 miles from her home, as well as extensive work on disaster preparedness and response Furthermore, she sits at the leadership helm of a climate change adaptation/resilience building initiative in Gulfport, MS which was launched in December of 2013 and includes projects on green schools, local food, equity based disaster management, community owned solar, and more! Ms. Egland is available to participate in the UN Climate Summit on September 23rd starting at 8:30am and the NAACP will sponsor her travel to attend.||Ms. Egland faced segregation with defiance at a young age in her birthplace in the Deep South of Mississippi. Her NAACP involvement began at an early age with her active role in the Hattiesburg (Forrest County) Youth NAACP. Shattered by the senseless murders of Medgar Evers and Vernon Dahmer as a young teen, she vowed to never forget that they gave their lives for her freedom. Marching, picketing, boycott monitoring and fielding deadly threats were routine throughout her youth and young adulthood. In 1967, Katherine was one of the first Black students to desegregate the Hattiesburg Public High School under the Federal School Choice Act. She and others carefully documented the overwhelming inequalities of the school system, which eventually led to a federal court desegregation order. She has held almost every position at NAACP Youth Council, Branch and State levels. During her presidency of the Gulfport, Mississippi Branch, membership and fundraising increased ten-fold. Her branch was also awarded two first places and one second place coveted Thalheimer Awards under her leadership. Kathy was elected to the NAACP Special Contribution Fund (SCF) in 1988. After the untimely 1997 death of Dr. Aaron Henry, the Mississippi State Conference voted unanimously to support her bid to fill his vacant at-large seat. She was nominated by the National Nominating Committee in 1997 and elected to National Board in 1998. She is the first and only residing female of the state to hold this honor. NAACP Board/SCF committee assignments are Environmental and Climate Justice, Chair; Personnel, Chair; Image Awards, Co-Chair; Convention Planning and Resolutions. Past committees include the Executive Committee, Budget Committee (Investment Subcommittee), Election Supervisory, Criminal Justice and Economic Development. She was among the named plaintiffs in the lawsuit against Mississippi’s official sanction of the Confederate flag and continues to denounce it as well as other racial injustices in frequently published commentaries. An avid advocate for educational parity and business ownership, Egland researched, developed and founded Special Programs for Advancing Children’s Education (SPACE) Learning Academy of Gulfport, MS in 1980. SPACE is a widely acclaimed early educational curriculum which challenges students of all backgrounds to achieve their highest level of excellence. She holds Bachelors of Science degrees from William Carey College and the University of Southern Mississippi.||https://www.dropbox.com/s/oha5e4ijd6fvonv/Katherine%20Egland_CV.docx||https://www.dropbox.com/s/zkon8wb03r98p9k/Katherine%20Egland%20ECJ%20SPEAKING%20ENGAGEMENTS.docx|

Now the position of sexual abuse or silent prostitution among girls in garments factories has been changed abruptly and it is very very hard to identify it because girls will totally reluctant to express because they prefer it of their personal concern and easy way way to get money or other facilities.
The other reality is some experts and specialists especially of international donors, national government agencies or UN who are much well informed of law, legislation, workers' interest & protection but the problem is they focus the girls involvement in sex affairs mainly like police inspector or sub inspectors or in traditional and ethical outlook, that most of the time beyond the actual position of the girls, I am in favor of the girl emotion, reality, interest, love them but I will never accept to victimize that wonderful girl restricting a girl from enjoying her personal rights and freedom.

The first one was in Rio+20, where I was the head of my delegation, where I wrote an article about the specific problem of the negociations between Northern countries and Southern countries on the green economy issue. The second one was in Rhodes, where I assisted to the Rhodes Youth Forum that is organized once a year to enable young professionnals to discuss about projects that could improve the role of civil society.

I'm a teacher assistant also at the Paris 12 university; I teach constitutionnal law and administrative law.

Then I have been the Director for international development for Youth Diplomacy for one year. As a Director, I had the chance to give conferences in French universities, and that developed my abilities to speak in public.

En effet, la Terre reçoit la majeure partie de son énergie du soleil (principalement sous forme de lumière visible), une partie est directement réfléchie par l’atmosphère et la terre, une autre absorbée par la terre et une dernière partie rayonnée sous forme d'infrarouges par notre planète. |
Le rayonnement infrarouge émis par la Terre est en partie intercepté par les gaz à effet de serre de l'atmosphère terrestre tandis que le reste est diffusé vers l'espace.
|Pays continental, enclavé sans littoral (le plus proche est le golfe de Guinée à 600 km), le Niger compte une superficie de 1 267 000 km² pour une population estimée à 17 millions d’habitants en 2012 caractérisée par un revenu de moins d’un dollar par habitant, un taux de croissance le plus élevé de la sous-région (3,3%), un taux d’analphabétisation de 70%, une faible couverture sanitaire qui fait apparaitre 1 médecin pour 36.000 habitants et une pharmacie pour 148.000 personnes.|
Inégalement répartie sur le territoire, cette population présente une densité disparate qui varie de 1 habitant par km² dans la zone nord (saharienne) couvrant 77% de la superficie totale du pays à 49 hbts/km² dans la zone Sahélo-Soudanienne plus au sud (agricole) représentant 1% du pays.
Pendant la période du BOOM de l’Uranium (1975-1980), l’économie nigérienne a enregistré une croissance de l’ordre de 21%. A partir de 1981, le marché de l’uranium plonge dans une crise sans précédent qui crée des perturbations dans tous les secteurs de l’économie nationale. Le Niger ne disposant pas d’autres ressources minières significatives, ne peut alors compter que sur le secteur rural déjà malade.
La part du sous-secteur agricole qui emploie 85% de la population totale passe de 70% en 1960 à 37% en 1997 du (PIB).
La baisse intermittente de la performance du sous-secteur agricole constatée à partir de 1970 est la conséquence d’une série de perturbation climatiques persistantes caractérisées par une irrégularité des pluies et leur mauvaise répartition dans l’espace et dans le temps. Cette situation se trouve renforcée par une exploitation extensive (par manque de moyens) des terres cultivables et un système inapproprié d’utilisation de l’ensemble des ressources naturelles ayant entrainé çà et là une dégradation des terres, des forêts et des eaux (taux de surface que souterraines).
|Face à cette situation économique, le gouvernement du Niger a engagé, à partir des années 70, des réflexions tendant à rechercher les moyens organisationnels et matériels de sortir le pays de la crise. Ainsi, du Conseil National de Développement (CND) durant la période 70-80 à la loi n° 98/56 du 29 Décembre 1998 relative à la gestion de l’environnement, le Niger, avec l’appui des pays et organismes internationaux amis, a mis au point plusieurs stratégies et alternatives de restauration de l’environnement et du développement de l’économie nationale.|

The mission of HYC mission is to advocate on behalf of young people in Honiara City to the Honiara City Council and other stakeholders operating in Honiara City. The council is designed to be a youth-led initiative backed by our national and regional stakeholders and represents a firm obligation to provide opportunities for young people so that they will be inspired to realize their potential and contribute to the social, economic and cultural welfare of the society. Her involvement into the council came as recognition for her role as a climate change youth activist which she she took on since she was 17 years old. What she wants to do is build a generation-wide movement to be the solution to the climate crisis and a force to challenge the way we currently do business.||Christina has attended climate change gatherings, gave talks, delivered speeches, mentored youth girls, did peer to peer education, participated in workshops relating to Climate Change, youth and leadership and executed a lot of activities targeted at empowering youth people to be part of the solution to Climate Change. These activities were in close collaboration with both local and foreign partners such as local women’s groups, the Honiara City Council, the Commonwealth Youth Program, the Red Cross, Oxfam, Young Women’s Parliamentary Group (Solomon Islands), SPC, Pacific Youth Council, relevant government miniseries, faith based groups, 350.org, Live and Learn and local youth groups in and around Honiara. Being a creative artist fanatic, her volunteerism work is to educate, empower and prioritize youth inclusiveness within the Climate Change debate. This meant doing advocacy awareness on a new creative youth-friendly ‘level’. The activities included action days, flash mob dances, media campaigns from one end of the capital city to the other, and using creative warrior images in our campaigns. She recognises that they doing what every other NGO in town were doing, and that was awareness on Climate Change. What was differently was the methods and tactics her group used to engage young people. With Honiara Youth Council (HFC), she is confident that as they progress forward, Climate Change awareness will become a key objective. HYC played a crucial role in the assessment phase during the aftermath of the April flooding that struck the Honiara recently. Seeing the devastation firsthand gave her an insight into how young people can be proactive in these circumstances. |
She recently participated in the Pacific Partnerships for Gender Climate Change and Sustainable Development and this has enhanced her knowledge and also her networks within the women’s movement on the issue in the Pacific. As a young woman Pacific climate change activist I hope to see how we can better enhance civil society partnership with Member States to better shape the Pacific’s position in global gender, sustainable development and climate change agendas.

Cateret atolls have been inundated by rising tides a result of climate change, deep sea mining and the atolls topography, forcing them to migrate to Bougainville. A community struggling to integrate into a new place with its own challenges, she is working to increase women’s voice in shaping development plans. With the atolls government, they record the impact of the loss and damage on their lives and future; charting the adaptation strategy for environmental refugees. They bring their message that over consumption and irresponsible carbon emissions ruin communities that contribute the least to global warming. This will be the 1st time Agnes has left Bougainville, the 1st woman from Carteret Islands to address the UN. We also request Bianca Carwinn, young researcher from Bougainville, also be allowed to attend. For more info http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cukuOLC9C50||Agnes Kinaka was born in the Carteret Islands of PNG. She attended primary school on the island and was selected to attend high school at St. Mary's Girls High School in Bougainville. However after only 6 months at school the civil war in Bougainville began. This meant she had to be moved to another Island and was unable to complete her education after the 10th grade. She returned to the Caterets, was married and had 4 children. She became active in her community church with a particular focus on working with women. She held several positions including secretary of the women's association and treasurer of the church funds. Agnes first recognised the dangers of rising tides and climate change in 2003. She was terrified to see huge waves destroying the island and causing long term damage. Other women and children panicked. There was no where to hide as the island is so flat. She could not do anything, everyone was helpless and terrified. As a single mother with four children and a community leader she realised that she had to understand what was damaging their community and plan for a future. She decided to move with others to Buka Island but felt deeply saddened by the loss of the Island culture, community and their matrilineal rights. She pledged to continue working with women to secure a better future. She now works with other women through a Feminist Participatory Action Research project to ensure women have an active role in determining their own development path. They have established constructive, gender sensitive processes with the Atolls local government and works to empower the first environmental refugees.||From email: Please be informed that we do not have a writing sample for Agnes Kinaka. As you may know from the profile, Agnes is a grassroots woman leader from Carteret Islands who has the first hand experience of displacement due to climate issues. She is a compelling speaker and strong organizer but her primary language is not English. Agnes Kinaka’s presentation to the Climate Summit will be drafted with the support of her organization and represent the voice of the women from Carteret Islands, the world’s first environmental refugees.||Video for nomination:|

He launched the campaign in early 2013 and the concept has already attracted international attention. A colleague brought his gas pump nozzle to COP19 in Warsaw where a delegate said “I’ve been to all 19 COP meetings and I’ve never seen an idea so simple yet so powerful.” Rob gathers insights from psychology, sociology, economic theory, behavioural economics, business, law and municipal politics to build the case for demand-side, local action on climate change. His trial experience as a lawyer and his playful sense of humour makes him a compelling and entertaining speaker. He has given talks to students, citizens groups and politicians across Canada.||Rob Shirkey is a lawyer from Toronto, Canada. Prior to launching Our Horizon, Rob operated a private practice in downtown Toronto. He also has experience as an Assistant City Solicitor and Prosecutor. Before completing his law degree, Rob studied business, economics, and psychology at the undergraduate level. He graduated with distinction and was the university valedictorian. Rob’s goal in life is simple: when a kid asks him, “What did you do to stop climate change?” he just wants to be able to look that kid in the eye and honestly say he did everything he could.||Rob's TEDx Talk:|

Although he had just started civil sector career as a director of One Degree Serbia he has proven himself as a tireless activist who makes contacts with various stakeholders.|
Djordje has been dealing with climate change for five years. He is familiar with different aspects of climate crisis and has in-depth knowledge of transportation emissions, energy production from fossil fuel and renewable energy sources. His excellent competency with climate and energy issues, his project design and management skills, as well as presentation proficiency, make him great advocacy leader who is able to transfer the message to various groups, implement campaign and deliver results.
He considers climate change as social rather than environmental issue. His opinion is that if we want to protect climate system we have to redesign our whole society (business, health care, education, defence).
|Djordje holds Master of Science and magister degree in air traffic engineering and professional master degree in QMS. Additionally, he completed ISO 14064-1 and -2 courses as well as numerous Coursera and edX MOOCs on climate change, energy and environmental law.|
Djordje has worked in aviation for 10 years. Since 2010 Djordje has worked as aviation consultant in the framework of EU Emissions Trading Scheme. He is expert in the establishment of emissions reporting system, creation of emissions reports and data and system auditing.
Right after completion of Al Gore’s training and joining the international network Climate Reality Leadership Corps, Djordje showed his leadership readiness. With few like-minded people he established One Degree Serbia (1C Serbia). 1C Serbia is a unique environmental organisation in the country since its mission prioritises mitigating climate change above other environmental and societal issues. 1C Serbia’s mission is the mitigation and adaptation to climate change, transformation to low-carbon economy, establishment of resilient communities, protection of ecosystems and future generations of humans. 1C Serbia membership includes experts in various areas: forestry, agriculture, transport, industrial processes,
Currently Djordje and his 1C Serbia team work on the following projects:
- Establishment of national climate activist network. This network will be the seed of future larger grassroot movement which objective will be to influence local, national and regional climate and energy policy. The movement will not be limited to Serbia, but will spread to whole Western Balkans.
- World Bank statement on the need for pricing carbon awareness campaign. The target people for this project are Serbian officials who will attend UN Climate Summit.
- Presentation on Can we stop climate change? for Belgrade Research Night (part of bigger European initiative) - http://ec.europa.eu/research/researchersnight/index_en.htm .
- Climate change session for Belgrade Science Festival (one of top 5 science festivals in Europe).
In addition to climate change Djordje is very interested in agriculture. He runs small traditional family farm.

DARAMOLA||CarbonSink Development Initiatives||www.carbonsink-ng.org||Nigeria||Canada||Male||29||English||I know Mr. Daramola for the past five years. Daramola has acquire professional skills working in Africa, Europe and North America. His recent work received an international award from the International Union of Forestry Research Union which will be presented to him in Salt Lake City Utah this October. Furthermore, he is actively involved in international forest policy processes. But my respect for the young man was heightened when he became a member of the UNFF Major Groups as a representative of the Youth and Children Major Group. As Focal Point of UNFF Women Major Group, I've had the opportunity of working more closely with Mr. Daramola a representative of UNFF Youth and Children Major Group. In these, I have been impressed with his analytical mind; his public speaking prowess and ability to connect with audiences well diverse groups of people. It is on this premise that I weigh my support for his nomination.||Daramola was raised in a family of 5. As a child, he was able to understand the true values of land to human survival. Daramola's family depend on agriculture and fuelwood for livelihood, but as the population of his community increases, the demand on forests increases and the task of collecting fuelwood and farming became increasingly onerous as forest and land degradation have increased the distances that must be traveled to obtain sufficient supply. |
The environmental challenges Daramola faced growing up in Africa informed his passion in the field of environmental conservation. He started as a community organizer, mobilizing his local community every Saturday for environmental sanitation and tree planting. Daramola knew he needed education to support his efforts, so he chose to study Forestry at the Federal University of Technology Akure, Nigeria. By the end of his first degree, he was selected to participate in EarthCorps environmental restoration training program in Seattle WA in 2009. EarthCorps brings young emerging environmental leaders from all around the world to Seattle to learn best practices on environmental conservation, restoration, community building and leadership, so they may return to their countries and apply the knowledge on the ground. Upon his return to Nigeria, he started an NGO of young environmental professionals across Africa called CarbonSink Development Initiatives with a vision of empowering local communities through the implementation of research and development projects around Land Use, Forest, and Climate Change. The organization started with grassroots environmental campaign in schools and villages in his community. Later on he partnered with his local community government to engage the secondary school pupils in tree planting. It is on this premise that he was awarded the MDGs Ambassador by Anwar Jannat Memorial Foundation in Pakistan. These activities got him involved in global forestry issues. In 2011, he was invited by the United Nations Forum on Forest to give a presentation on “Food, Energy and Economic Challenges and Opportunities with a Special Focus on Youth and Women” during the UNFF9 at the UN headquarters in New York. Furthermore, in 2013, he was awarded the 2013 Commonwealth Young Forester Award. Holder of a Master’s Degree in Global climate Change Management at Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development in Germany, he is presently doing his PhD at the University of British Columbia in Canada.

Influencing UK government policy, establishing his own social enterprise and fronting a media campaign that reached over 3 million people are just a few of the items David has achieved as a climate change activist since being impacted by a stark reminder of climate change as a teenager. From a meeting with then Prime Minister Tony Blair at 10 Downing Street he discussed the implementation of climate change on the national curriculum; it is now an essential part of youth education and he has pushed to expand these education reforms worldwide in negotiations chaired by the British Council. As a Three Dot Dash Global Teen Leader he has expanded his philanthropic and award-winning social enterprise which has developed eco gardens across Northern England and within the historic grounds of Durham University. David has acted as an environmental consultant for countless organisations and is a regular commentator on contemporary climate issues within academic arenas and international media outlets. He has studied the science of climate change at Durham University for 3 years and led a ground breaking glacier survey expedition to Vatnajökull, Iceland. His most recent venture transformed the medieval Market Square of Durham City into an outdoor cinema to showcase the award winning documentary ‘Chasing Ice’ and then chair ‘Climate Change Question Time’ where the public could grill world leading climate experts on the science behind the headlines and how to tackle the problem.
He is a passionate climate change activist and he closely follows international climate negotiations by participating in the 2014 Adopt a Negotiator Programme.

By helping to reduce food waste in the cafeteria, and establishing a school-wide recycling program, Alicia helped to build youth awareness of the climate challenge. After moving to the UK for university, Alicia was involved in the University of St Andrews Sustainable Development society, and was instrumental in the development of Healthy Planet UK’s COP 19 delegation. At COP19, Alicia managed to build strong connections with both Canadian and British politicians and negotiators, and upheld a formidable standard of social media presence. By publishing scientific articles and briefs on the health impacts of climate change, Alicia is able to integrate her areas of expertise. In the future, Alicia hopes to remain involved in the shaping of climate policy and the implementation of climate action.||https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8CrSwMZIaSGSWdUeVNxanhHVFU/edit?usp=sharing||http://blogs.plos.org/speakingofmedicine/2014/03/14/health-jeopardy-corporate-influence-climate-negotiations/|

As I am investigating and active in different areas around the topic of climate change I now consider my experience and knowledge useful to the United Nations Climate Summit. Within the overall topic of climate change I have experience in research and project management in related topics as human/specificallyn indigenous rights, environmental destruction, migration due to climate change & politics, alternative lifestyle opportunities and economical interests. This helped me to understand the wider picture of climate discussions and led to a better understanding of what kind of solutions must be encountered. Therefore I seek for the possibility to exchange ideas with other professionals of around the world and be part of the change. It is not only my academic interest in these themes but also a personal passion, to help to find efficient ways so humanity can confront this planetary topic united.||As a daughter of a peruvian physicist and a swiss social worker, with a brother and sister Born in New York, I grew up in an internationally orientad family. After the completion of my Matura, I had the opportunity to travel through several countries in South America. There I began to recognize the severity of the problems associate with climate change as f.e. food production, sustainability, human rights and environmental protection. This experience helped me to grasp the importance and potential of the application of advanced scientific knowledge in synergy with the application of “local knowledge”, acquired by centuries of experience by the local populations.|
After this experience and upon my return to Switzerland I started studies in Sociology at the University of Zurich, with a minor en Environmental Sciences, Biology and Ethnology. Than I had the opportunity to work for a NGO on the topic of indigenous rights.I continued my studies in the Master program in Environmental Science with focus on the interrelationship between human populations and environment. During the lecture-free periods I travelled back to South America. I worked in sustainable farms with agroforestry method and permaculture. I organized various events on climate change and adaption.Currently I work as a volunteer Research for CliMates and ClimateCoLab and realize informational Workshop for old and Young to the topic of climate change.

CliMates is an international student think-&-do tank and association aiming to find new and innovative solutions in the fight against climate change. Our central organization is based in Paris but our active network is international.
COP in MyCity is a youth-led project coordinated by CliMates with ambitions to bridge the gap between climate negotiations (a.k.a. the COPs) and the mainstream public, foster education and action about climate change locally and create an international community of agents of change committed to global cooperation and dialogue on climate change.
Starting my second year of Master in Human Rights at Strasbourg law university (major Minority Rights), I want to work on youth policy addressing the issue of youth vulnerability to climate change. I'm really concerned by climate change driving child poverty. Alerted by the failure of the UN Climate negotiations at COP15 in Copenhagen in 2009, I realized that in a globalised world, unilateralism turned out to inefficient, if not impossible. In October 2013, I participated in the 8th UNESCO Youth Forum in Paris as an organizer. I really appreciated how we worked to integrate youth in decision-making and discuss the implementation of the operational strategy with other UN agencies like UNFPA and UNIDO. The general theme of the conference was "Youth & social inclusion: civic engagement, dialogue & skills development". I think young people are key agents for social change, economic develoment and technology innovation. In 2011-2012, I was Project Manager intern for UNIDO and I helped young entrepreneurs from developing countries to develop their business through investments and technology transfers. In this context, I co-organized the Eco-Cities Forum 2011 in Marseille which was a great platform to discuss sustainability issues and resilience in Mediterranean cities. In 2013, while being an exchange student in Nagoya, Japan, I realized the environmental implications of the Fukushima disaster. Since 2013, I'm also a young climate leader. In my student think-&-do tank, CliMates, we rely on a highly qualified student network supported by researchers and enhance the depth and integrity of publications of student solutions to climate change. We use education on sustainable development to develop mutual assistance on a daily basis to students in emerging countries and reckon that an altruistic mindset is the first step to solve sustainability issues around the world. We develop innovative tools for education to sustainable development, like simulations of the climate change negotiations. In CliMates, I am currently the Research coordinator for the COP in MyCity Project: http://copinmycity.weebly.com/ Simulations of the COPs help young people like us to build more resilient communities and bridge the gap between civil society and decision-makers. We work closely with other climate youth movements, YOUNGO and international partners like the Earth Charter.

We try, through research, capacity building and advocacy to promote welfare to communities, to keep the supply chain deforestation free and to support the governments within Brazilian Amazon on forest governance. Andrea Azevedo is our police public director and she is working with these agendas actively. She is very prepared to participate and take to the UN meeting an agenda of Brazilian Amazon regarding halt of deforestation from civil society perspective. She lives in the Brazilian Amazon and her principal cause is to find effective ways to incentive farmers and ranchers to comply with forestry law to foster conservation. She is leading several assessments about land use and climate changes policies in Amazon and informing many collectives. Also she is an active member of soy moratorium group that monitors deforestation for soy cropping in the Amazon biome||I have born in Brazil and I am proud of being a Brazilian woman. I have dedicated major part of my life to change the reality, or at least to try, in terms of inequality, poverty and sustainability. My history can be seen as paradox. I live in Mato Grosso, a southeastern state of Brazilian Amazon since I was very young. My family arrived here in the 1960´s looking for buying land to raise cattle. At that time price of land in amazon was very cheap and there were lots of incentives to deforest the region to raise cattle and crop rice. So, I grew up in a family that used to deforest to earn money. At some point of my life, that fact began to disturb me a lot, so I went to university and did biology, the science of life. During that time, I had 4 children, but I still became a biology teacher and joined to a small NGO of my city. From that time, in 1998, I began my struggle against deforestation in Amazon. In 2000 I did my master on environmental economics to understand the economic rationale behind natural resources exploration. In 2005 I began my PhD in Sustainable Development and in 2007 I start my studies about climate change. All my studies were in institutions far from my region and I had to put a high effort to finish and to be way from my family. My researcher is composed of applied issues/ themes, where I can discuss with policy makers, with people on the ground from big to smallholders. After my PhD I decided only to Work in civil society institutions. I decided that my live, even being from a family of “deforesters” would be dedicated to find effective and innovative ways to halt deforestation. I am working actively at IPAM since 2010 in several agendas related to decrease of deforestation, increase of production under a low carbon economy and bring value to forest and for who lives there. I have much to do and learn yet and de principal form I can do it is through communication, writing, debating, teaching and learning.||http://lattes.cnpq.br/4904467733226391||https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1deG0exGg7KWTc3eHZPMHpFWTA/edit?usp=sharing|

Learning about Climate change issues and Sustainable Development, empowering women in mitigating its effect are the main objectives of my activities; in addition to that, these activities provided me with the perfect approach of environmental sustainability knowledge within the national context.
I believe that giving women a spot in the decision making process can able to create a broader base of women involvement and builds stronger and more comprehensive communities. My involvement in the international climate change conferences assisted me to enhance the participation of women in some local environmental decision-making processes here in Saudi.
Women and youth in general participation are crucial in the development of active citizenship because it balances their social rights with their responsibilities. It is only by working in true partnership with young people, by listening to their involvements in fighting climate change, so that the society can benefit from their innovative contributions. Therefore, their effective participation is about creating opportunities for them to be involved in influencing, shaping, designing and contributing to mitigate climate change effects.

His findings on committed global warming and climate change have been published in journals and presented at conferences around the world. He has developed numerous websites to help lay people understand climate change issues, and his website for the medical community is visited by health care professionals from around the world.||Peter D. Carter, M.D. is a retired family physician who practiced medicine first in England and then on both coasts of Canada for almost 40 years|
When his sons were born, Dr. Carter became actively involved in environmental, peace, and sustainable development issues, especially as they relate to children's health. (Fatherhood created that urge to leave the world a better place as a legacy for his children.)
As a founding director of CAPE (Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment) and, more recently, as the founder of the Climate Emergency Institute, Dr. Carter has presented on sustainable development, environmental health policy, biodiversity, and especially climate change issues in Canada, the United States and overseas.
Dr. Carter has dedicated the last 25 years to following the global warming and climate change research. His approach to assessing climate change is based on environmental health and human rights protection. Since 2007, he has developed a unique approach to climate change risk, by estimating the total committed (i.e., locked in or unavoidable) global warming, which he has had published in scientific journals. He provides climate science information to several websites.
Dr. Carter has documented the science that shows we are already far beyond "dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system" (as defined by the 1992 UN climate change convention). This science also shows that the world is facing planetary catastrophe from multiple amplifying feedbacks in the Arctic and is committed to catastrophic crop declines.
He was an expert reviewer for the IPCC (AR5) fifth climate change assessment. He covers environmental protection policy for the Climate Emergency Institute, and has submitted to UN and FAO consultations on this topic.
Dr. Carter's mission now is to spread the full truth about the extreme risks and the magnitude of the global climate change emergency, especially when it comes to Arctic methane feedback runaway heating and food security. He does this by synthesizing the scientific research for climate change conferences and sharing it with lay audiences. He has a deep understanding of how governments can mitigate the worst climate change impacts – by adopting the IPCC's best case scenario, RCP2.6, plus the strong suggestions in Climate Action Network International's June 2014 position statement on climate change.

The crisis won´t be solved, either, if there is not full and honest disclosure to civil society of what is at stake in the negotiations. Civil society must reclaim its place within intergovernmental talks and mediate, as any other representative stakeholder, between the parties. Civil society is what makes the UNFCCC exist and work towards managing the biggest challenge that humanity has ever faced: climate change. I want to be part of the civil society representatives to speak and participate at the Climate Summit because I believe that the only chance of reaching a real sustainable world is if members of civil society groups, like me, open up channels of active and strong participation and communication with the institutions.||I was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia. At 18 years old, I left home to United World College in Costa Rica (UWCCR) for two years. There, I accomplished the International Baccalaureate at UWCCR and was honored with living a multicultural life-experience with friends coming from all over the world. In 2011, I came to study Human Ecology at College of the Atlantic (COA), Maine, where I am currently entering my fourth and last year of college. At COA I have taken courses of agroecology, food policy & justice, botany and ethnobotany and I am more than certain that my passion is working with the land at different levels, from agricultural practices, to rural development to international food policy. But the study and work in the land around the world is shifting rapidly and furiously threatened by climate change. The understanding of the climate crisis made me dig into the climate negotiations regime and become familiar with climate change issues, especially with a climate justice perspective. With Earth in Brackets I have gone to Rio+20 Summit, COP19 Warsaw, social preCOP, and soon COP20 Lima.||https://docs.google.com/a/coa.edu/document/d/1SX1WATV5uyQ7UZe4NDPLh5WqC4B5P0aH04qUJoXov00/edit?usp=sharing||https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Jx2nY77gm6psbLjzJrT2eb-di243LfzqHu5f-dAbwok/edit?usp=sharing|

Scientists warn that if we do not aggressively curb climate change now, the results will likely be disastrous. Climate change is a complex phenomenon, and its full-scale impacts are hard to predict far in advance. But each year scientists learn more about how climate change is affecting the planet and our communities, and most agree that certain consequences are likely to occur if current trends continue.|
In addition to impacting our water resources, energy supply, transportation, agriculture, and ecosystems, the United States Global Change Research Program concludes that climate change also poses unique challenges to human health, such as:
• Significant increases in the risk of illness and death related to extreme heat and heat waves are very likely.
• Some diseases transmitted by food, water, and insects are likely to increase.
