Advocacy: BNRCC/NYCC Youth-Media Dialogue and the NASPA Project!

The NYCC team(Esther, Tiawo, Femi, and Abraham) paid an advocacy visit to the NASPA Project Office recently.

It is clear that an organized, systematic approach at the national level in Nigeria is needed to address our climate change problem. The core challenge for Nigeria is to develop the framework and the capacity at the state and local level to assess and respond to vulnerability and resilience of sectors to predicted climate change impacts. This will involve the development, assessment and implementation of adaptation options. The “National Climate Change Adaptation Strategy and Plan of Action” (NASPA) project is designed to assist in this process.

The National Climate Change Adaptation Strategy and Plan of Action (NASPA) Project was developed on the achievement of an earlier initiative called the Canada-Nigeria Climate Change Capacity Development Project (C-NCCCDP), implemented with funding from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), 2001-2004 and implemented by the Nigeria Environmental Study/Action Team (NEST).(http://www.naspanigeria.org)

As Part of our Project activity, NYCC with support of BNRCC is planing a Youth Media Dialogue  for August 2010. An event that will create a platform where two Force. YOUTH AND MEDIA  .where Youth will speak to  youth and Media, connect! an event that is geared towards shifting  Power to Clean Energy and to young People with paradigm shift while contributing to the NASPA project.

Like our peers in the UK, Canada, and the US, their POWERSHIFT event has inspire, activate and connect thousands of young people to address climate change together. This has also inspired many people in Africa, and Nigeria, as a giant of Africa is taking the lead!

Building on the success of NYCC  2009 and the rapid growth of the Nigerian  Youth Climate Coalition, Youth Media Dlaiogue will empower and train the next generation of climate leaders to achieve positive change.

The program will include inspirational keynote speeches from high profile youth leaders, climate scientists and politicians; workshops on community organisation, climate science, solutions and how to create change in your community; regional breakouts, enabling you to plan climate action with people in your region; and heaps of other fun sessions! Power Shift is part conference, part festival, part training, part celebration of the power of young people to change the world, and so much more.
