I am a member of the UK Youth Climate Coalition (UKYCC). This December, UKYCC are sending a team of 23 delegates to the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, as the UK Youth Delegation. Myself and another member of the delegation, Adam Tyler, are creating a series of short documentary films about this Delegation, to be distributed to young people on the internet before, during and after the Copenhagen Conference.
The first film, entitled UKYCC Prologue - Emma
, is now ready to be distributed.
For young people, the decisions made in Copenhagen will be life-changing
. Governments and diplomats will determine what kind of world they will inherit - clean or polluted; just or unjust; secure or dangerously unstable. The UK Youth Delegation will strive to bring the youth voice to negotiations, and perhaps their greatest asset is the inspiration they can provide to the legions of young people back in the UK.
We hope the UKYCC Films will bring their inspiring stories directly to young people who need to hear them. But this is an entirely voluntary/no-budget project, so we are depending on the support of organisations and individuals like yourselves to help us promote it to those young people.
To view the first film, please visit the following link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZOuekH12zU
. If you would be happy to add a link to, or embed the film on, your website, this is the link to use. Alternatively, you could add a link to your facebook, twitter and/or bebo to spread the word!

Any help is greatly appreciated,
