WMO to Bring Youth Messages to World Climate Conference-3

© WMO8 June 2009: The World Meteorological Organization (WMO), through the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services, and the GLOBE Program (Global Learning Observations to Benefit the Environment) are inviting young people to create compelling, short messages on the topic: “Youth working to solve local problems through weather and climate research.” A selection of the messages submitted will be displayed at the third World Climate Conference (WCC-3), scheduled to take place from 31 August-4 September 2009, in Geneva, Switzerland.

The intent of the WMO-GLOBE youth message initiative is to provide scientists, policy-makers, global business leaders and media representatives attending WCC-3 with examples of the many ways that youth from around the world are using their research on weather and climate to respond to climate issues in their regions.[WMO Press Release][GLOBE Website] [WCC-3 Website]
