Local environmentalist attends Change of Course Conference

Dr Justine BrabyDeputy Coordinator/Programme Director of the African Youth Initiative on Climate Change (AYICC), Justine Braby was one of the 60 young activists chosen to participate in the Change of Course Conference.
The idea for the Conference, which took place from 8 to 11 December 2012 in Winterthur, Switzerland began earlier this year as a web based project, run in conjuction with Web for Interdisciplinary Research and Expertise (W.I.R.E) that asked activists to contribute a blog of 500 words on how to bring about an argument change in thinking and action. Justine was the only Namibian selected to represent the country.
The Conference was organised by the Club of Rome, an international think-tank, composed of 1500 national members and over 30 national associations, with a mission of analysing the challenges facing humankind in a systematic, holistic and long term manner. The young leaders held discussions around finding solutions to the world’s challenges towards a more equitable and sustainable world.
