Commonwealth Secretariat and the University of Cambridge invite applications for the Commonwealth climate Bootcamp called the Commonwealth Small States Youth Climate Policy Boot Camp in the UK in 2021.
Young people are invited to register for the Commonwealth climate boot camp which is a four-hour boot camp, which is designed to help Small State governments find better ways to finance youth development initiatives.
Each boot camp is designed to strengthen the thinking capacity and reasoning of the participants in a short burst of time. This is to help them to endure and appreciate the challenges related to driving policy and systems-level change. By bringing together a diverse group of stakeholders in the decision-making process, the policy boot camp is a co-creation forum for improved understanding of how to create solutions.
