Worldwide Nepalese Students’ Organization together with the Nepali Youth Task Force on Rio+20 is organizing Kathmandu+20 – a wider gathering of Nepalese Youth on 24-25th May 2012 in Kathmandu, Nepal as part of the international project “MyCity+20” (http://mycityplus20.blogspot.co.uk).
In the run-up to the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (also known as Rio+20) in Rio de Janeiro this June, young people around the globe want to share their views on the future of their planet. Youth are eager to get involved in the decision-making process and learn and apply key issues surrounding sustainable development and the emerging global frameworks for sustainable socio-economic and environmental development as well as inter generational equity.
We are organizing a 2-days long Conference where we will interact with the experts, negotiators and government officials working on Rio+20. This event also aims to hold the simulation of the summit.
Kathmandu+20 is a youth led initiative aiming to bring up the voice of Nepali Youth towards Rio+20 (www.uncsd2012.org) and take them to the real event by organizing simulations of the summit and engaging and educating youth and students on the issues of the Rio+20.
