Commonwealth programme open to local youngsters

| 09/03/2014

(CNS): Young Caymanians aged between 18-15 are being invited to apply for one of 100 places on a special leadership programme to take place in Scotland this summer alongside the commonwealth Games. The Commonwealth Youth Leadership Programme 33Fifty is looking for  talented young people from across the Commonwealth to take part in the free four day programme in Glasgow and Edinburgh where they will work in groups to develop a response to the challenge “What role does the youth of the Commonwealth need to play in progress toward low-carbon economies?”

The programme, according to organisers aims to connect knowledge across nations and to inspire the next generation of leaders. It will see participants present their reports to Commonwealth Sports Ministers, International Development Ministers or Heads of State who will be gathered for the Commonwealth Games.

Eligible applicants must be aged 18-25 on 17 July 2014, and be a citizen of a Commonwealth country. The deadline for submissions is 16 March 2014. Submissions must be made via an application form found on the website in which applicants must answer five questions about themselves on which the selection will be based.

For more information visit the 33Fifty website at www.33fifty.org Facebook and Twitter, or email info@33fifty.org.

    The question is “What role does the youth of the Commonwealth need to play in progress toward low-carbon economies?” And where did you go 01:13, we see ya got intelligence, but stick to the question scene.

    What a vacuous topic.  Surely the answer is to limit trade with high polluting nations such as China until they approach suitable levels  and stop them benefiting from environmental arbitrage.
