Call for Applications: Represent the Global Young Greens at the 100% Renewable Energy Road To Marrakech Climate Action Caravan
Location: Senegal, Mauretanie, Morocco
Type: fully funded (accomodation, visa, health, feeding, security) except for flights to Dakar and from Marrakesh
Date: 21/10/2016 until 2/11/2016
The CLIMATE CARAVAN wants to point the world’s attention to one of the most important topics that we have to deal with: climate. A changing climate means facing problems and not only in future, but already nowadays. The Caravan will pass 11 different cities (Dakar, St. Louis, Podor, Rosso-Mauritania, Nouakchott, Nouadhibou, Dakhla, Laayoune, Ouarzazate, Agadir and Marrakech) in the countries of Senegal, Mauretanie and Morocco by its ten days walk.
These countries already have been facing many problems caused by climate and only little attention has been payed to this fact. This will be changed by the Climate Caravan: the main goals of the Caravan are to exchange knowledge, to mobilize people, to point attention to the vulnerabilities of the countries the caravan will pass through and to find solutions to the problems we have to face.
The Caravan will make this possible by offering workshops, activities and a platform for activists to exchange their knowledge and experience.
The stop in Ouarzazate will be a special one as it is where NOOR, the world’s largest solar station is based.
The Caravan will end in Marrakesh the 2nd of November, where the COY12 (conference of youth) will be hold shortly after.
