“We cannot wait another generation,” says former Norwegian prime minister Gro Harlem Brundtland (pictured top right). She and former Irish president Mary Robinson (top left) are collaborating with CliMates, a student-led think-and-do-tank, to run a contest on youth climate leadership.
The contest seeks ideas that empower young people to influence climate change decision-making and create high-impact action.
Contest now open. Entries due before July 31, 2014.
