Workshop: Developing Climate Solutions, Entrepreneurial Approaches to Addressing Climate Challenges and Opportunities

Climate security is one of the main challenges of 21st century. The subject has been rapidly moving up the political and economic agendas over recent years. Responding to this challenge, the British Council has established Climate Generation, a climate initiative in the East Asia region which aims to build a sustainable network of “emerging leaders” who are committed to taking action in limiting the contribution they and society make to greenhouse gas emissions.
As part of their program, a series of workshops have been organised in the region. This time, The Workshop “DEVELOPING CLIMATE SOLUTIONS, Entrepreneurial approaches to addressing climate challenges and opportunities”  will be held near Hanoi, Vietnam from 22-26 November. And they are looking for young people from 20 – 30 years old who have demonstrable leadership qualities and interest in environmental issues, especially climate change. Although applications are welcome from all sectors, the training will have a special focus on business and social enterprise and they encourage participants with these backgrounds.

If you think you have what it takes to be a climate leader and interested in attending our workshop, please complete the attached application form and return to Duong.NguyenThuy@britishcouncil.org.vn before 25 October.

Note: Travel and accommodation costs will be covered by the British Council.
