CSE gives children an opportunity to voice their concerns on global environmental governance, in their own way
The Eighth Conference of Parties (CoP-8) to the United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change (UNFCCC), being held in New Delhi between October 23 and November 1, 2002, will in many ways determine the future of global economic and environmental governance.
On Friday, October 25, the third day of these crucial negotiations, about 400 children from across the country and from different economic backgrounds will collect to voice their concerns on equal rights to the atmosphere, on behalf of children across the world, and to caution the Indian government, and negotiators, to be aware of their responsibilities to future generations and urge them towards a greener and more equitable world. In the end, it will be the children who will have to live with the rules made today.
This being a crucial international event, the demonstration of children to demand a new beginning in climate change negotiations based on equity and fairness is likely to make a strong visual statement.
