For the past two days, in gearing up for COP 18, we took part in this year’s 8th COY held at Education City – Student Centre, in Doha, Qatar. Here are some recaps of the CYD in action during the second day of the conference:


The morning started off with us launching our project: a physical representation of the impacts of climate change and extreme weather, in addition to the impacts of extraction around the globe. The map will be a reminder of the impacts that a changing climate are having on people around the globe today, as well as the impacts that the the fossil fuel industry is having on communities.

That’s all for now folks. Stay tuned for more activities of the CYD as we prepare to enter the stages of COP 18 within the next few days!
