Dear Rtn. Ramayya Garu,

Profile of Mr Chaitanyakumar , Speaker

Chaitanya Kumar has been involved with the activities of the Indian Youth Climate Network for over 1.5 years now. He is passionate about the environment and wants to work hard in bringing about a foreseeable change in the way we treat nature. His involvement began with small activities like organizing green fests in college before he joined the IYCN. He has been a part of the first ever Indian youth delegation to attend the UN Conference of Parties (14) in Poznan, Poland in Dec '08 and headed the second delegation to Copenhagen in '09 or COP15.

He has helped organize the Climate Solutions Road Tour , a journey across India to document and celebrate climate solutions in India. Beside this, he has had a brief stint with MV Foundation, an NGO working in Hyderabad around natural resource management across 108 villages. He has also represented the IYCN at a conference in Nepal for discussions on World Bank policy for Climate Change and also in Canada to talk about how disenfranchised people will adapt to climate change.

He is currently involved in mobilizing youth across the country and also working on developing pilot projects for IYCN. He intends to continue his work and dedicate a lot more on the issue of Climate Change.

Here is a short abstract on the talk I would like to give on Thursday:

Climate change has many aspects to it and while many of us still grapple to understand the change we are about to witness, some of us have begun to work on implementing solutions to mitigate the inpact of climate change . As a generation that will bear the consequences of today's action , the youth ought to be the prime moves of positive change through sustainable and innovative development.

The Indian youth climate network along with many other youth organizations across the globe are working towards building a worldwide consensus on climate change and creating a movement that is imperative for bringing the change we wish to see in the world. The talk will focus on youth involveement in climate change and the growing movement across the world!
