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.

Idealog has been covering the most interesting people, businesses and issues from the fields of innovation, design, technology and urban development for over 12 years. And we're asking for your support so we can keep telling those stories, inspire more entrepreneurs to start their own businesses and keep pushing New Zealand forward. Give over $5 a month and you will not only be supporting New Zealand innovation, but you’ll also receive a print subscription and a copy of the new book by David Downs and Dr. Michelle Dickinson, No. 8 Recharged (while stocks last).
