The Youth Caravan to COP 17

The Youth Caravan that is part of the "‘We Have Faith" campaign (www.facebook.com/we.have.faith, www.wehavefaithactnow.org) will flag-off from Nairobi, Kenya on November 7 and will travel through 3 African countries to reach Durban by 23 November. The initiative brings together faith based organizations, community based organizations and youth movements from across Africa and draws the support from global climate justice and faith based movements to demand action, and give options and solutions. The main idea of the caravan is a fanfare that travels by road through several African countries with the message of climate justice. The youth participating in the caravan will use music, dance and drama to create awareness on climate change and COP 17, share best practice in community initiatives on climate change, amplify the voice of young people throughout the continent and interact with youth and other stakeholders in the countries that the caravan shall pass. The crescendo of the caravan will be the final performance in the soccer stadium in Durban with approximately 1,000 youth forming a mass choir and singing together with celebrities from Africa and beyond. Archbishop Desmond Tutu and former president of Ireland Mary Robinson have confirmed their attendance at this final .
