Greetings young leaders and friends of the Global Leadership Coalition. HAPPY EARTH DAY. On this Earth Day, we invite you to be conscious of the effects of Climate Change on the environment, on your environment. Today some 175 member nations of the UN signed the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the next steps will include ratification and taking action.
GLC is gearing up for two Entrepreneurship Challenges this year, one in the Caribbean and one in Ghana. One of the areas of focus in both challenges is Climate Change and sustainable energy. Watch out for more details.
As you reach out to encourage applicants or apply for participation in the 2016 Entrepreneurship Challenge(s), think of the difference you can or you can encourage young people to take to reduce and reverse the impacts of climate change.
