Destination Doha: NZYD seeks crowdfunding to attend UN climate change summit

nz youth delegation nz climate change negotiations summit fundraisingMeet David Gawith, Hannah Griffin, Sofia Robinson, Sam Sharp, and Simon Tapp. The quintet make up the New Zealand Youth Delegation, a team of passionate young Kiwis selected to represent the country's youth at the UN Climate Change Negotiations (COP 18) in Doha this year. Established in 2009, the New Zealand Youth Delegation maintains a strong legacy at the international summits.

Doha, of course, isn't the cheapest of destinations. The delegation is looking to raise $3,000 over the next couple of weeks on PledgeMe. If you'd like to help propel them along the way, they've still got a ways to go before hitting that goal to fund the trip.
