Even as we all hold our breaths awaiting the release of the national strategy on climate change adaptation and mitigation which has been delayed time and again, the Indian youth are mobilizing once again to turn up the pressure. Rumors abound around this national strategic plan which is being formulated without input from civil society (granted there are noted environmentalists on the PM’s council who are working to draft the policy). The Indian Youth Climate Network in conjunction with the Friendship Foundation, Global Citizens for Sustainable Development and the Nature & Biological Sciences Society are organizing a national level summit where 200 youth and young professionals from across the nation will gather to set India’s agenda on climate change, debate the post-2012 scenario and evaluate the national strategy which will hopefully be released by then (the Summit is scheduled for early August).
