From: George Ndungu
From 2nd-5th December 2013, young people will gather in the UN Complex Gigiri, Nairobi, for the Regional Youth Green Growth Forum 2013. Convened by the Organization of African Youth, the Ministry of Environment, Water and Natural Resources and partners, the main objective of the forum is to provide a platform for young people to learn, share and identify tools to foster inclusive green growth in Africa and build partnerships to put the tools into practice in their work.
Under theme, “Harnessing the Potential of Youth as Partners for Inclusive Green Growth and Climate Resilience,” the forum will unleash the potential of young people and provide them with knowledge and skills to enable them drive the sustainable development agenda in their various communities.
We will have three days of learning, dialogue and sharing best practices on 2nd-4th. On 5th we will join the UNV to celebrate the International Day of Volunteers in community activities. With the support of our partners, we have been able to reduce the participation fee to the minimum possible as follows:
Kenyans = $50
African Region =$100
We believe this will enable more young people to attend this life-changing event. The participation fee will cover the costs of the delegates lunch & tea, local transport and conference materials.
For those who have already registered, we are in the process of sending to you the fee payment methods. Kindly note we will only be able to send you an official invitation letter after we receive confirmation of your payment. All delegates are responsible for their own travel to and fro and accommodation during the stay in Nairobi. We will send logistical information to all delegates with more details
For those not yet registered and planning to attend the event, we have extended the deadline for registration to 15th November 2013. We will get in touch immediately after receiving your details Here is the link to the registration form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1FDQCJ0ZoOjdmnaNgwIQs_Ro8F8moWXAQJXEZBO1SayQ/viewform
