(shared post) Dear colleagues,
I’m pleased to share with you a new publication entitled ‘‘Youth in Action on Climate Change. Youth in Action on Climate Change: Inspirations from Around the World” that the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has been working with global young people to produce.
The objective of this new publication by the UNFCCC and the United Nations Joint Framework Initiative on Children, Youth and Climate Change is to highlight concrete work young people do to incite their governments and the international community to scale up action on climate change and raise ambition towards a post-2020 climate change regime. It is designed as a tool and a source of inspiration for developing and carrying out projects, initiatives and campaigns to increase awareness of the causes and impacts of climate change, promote sustainable lifestyles and advance green low-carbon development.
Some young people or organisations (like the NGO I belong to – see pages 66 and 67) submitted some work they have been doing at home. You can see them in the publication so please take the time to have a look. I can’t attach a copy to this email as the document is very heavy, so please download it on the UNFCCC website at http://unfccc.int/

The United Nations Joint Framework Initiative on Children, Youth and Climate Change is also keen for organisations to make use of the report and promote on their own websites, social media etc. I will advise you to share it around you.
Yesterday June 11th the publication was launched at the UNFCCC Intersessionals Climate Change Negotiations at the Ministry for the Environment in Bonn, Germany.

By Yula Pannadopoulos I am not quite sure how to start this “From our desk”, as we are still trying to comprehend that we’ve had over a half a million views for our April issue. THANK YOU! We love it that you love it, and we’ll do our best to keep bringing you interesting content, thought provoking interviews and beautiful photography. May is the month when we celebrate the International day of biological diversity. May is also the month when we celebrate World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development. For our May issue we spoke with three fantastic, positive and inspiring women: Jill MacIntyre Witt, and environmental activist from the United States, Anam Gill, a young journalist from Pakistan and Amanda Jane Saurin, alembic distiller and producer of handmade natural skincare, from England. We are hoping that these three interviews will inspire you and maybe help you find your own niche-world, your own bit of heaven. On Earth Day eve we saw Do the Math, a brilliantly done documentary from 350.org, and since we find Bill McKibben to be endlessly inspiring, we also read his book Deep Economy. We’ll also talk about sustainable agriculture, the Western Caucasus (the World Nature Heritage Site), fundraising, the Armenia Tree Project, and we have some truly beautiful photos from Malta, Cornwall and Chile. Flip through, there is so much more inside! Our next issue is due on June 2nd, until then do enjoy (and share!) this one.
We are super excited about our Nektarina (S)pace May issue, due on April 30th. We are bringing you 200+ pages of great content and photographs, interviews and personal stories, one really great documentary and some inspiring artwork. We’ll make the magazine available on our E-Magazine tab on this website from May 1st, and, as with our previous issues, you’ll be able to read it online or download it as pdf for free, and read it offline on any pdf supporting devices. If you’d like to contribute to our upcoming issues, just drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org , we would be happy to consider publishing your articles and photographs. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
Our latest web publication The History of Sustainability is available online. The publication can be downloaded, for free, as a pdf, and you can read it on any of your mobile devices. It is printable in A4 format, but we urge you to consider your environmental responsibility before printing it. For your easier reference, we have added an E-Publications tab on our website, where you can easily find all our online publications. Don’t forget the E-Magazine tab, with all issues of our Nektarina (S)pace web magazine. Enjoy!
After publishing a booklet about Sustainable Living last year, this year we are continuing with more resourceful materials about sustainable schools, sustainable cities, sustainable food and the history of sustainability. Sustainable Schools web publication is available at this link: http://www.issuu.com/nektarinapublishing/docs/sustainable_schools This week we are bringing you Sustainable Schools, a 30+ pages resource manual explaining different aspects of sustainability in schools, and also sharing some best practices and what-can-you-do examples. The publication is printable in A4 format, but we urge you to consider your environmental responsibility before printing. You can read the publication online, or, alternatively, you can download it as a pdf to your computer or device(s) and read it offline. Please feel free to share the publication with your family and friends.
Some of you may already know that as we entered the second year of the Education for Sustainability project (September 2012) we started e-publishing a monthly magazine Nektarina (S)pace. Every month we do our best to bring you content and photographs hoping they will enable you to learn more about the environment and sustainability, and inspire you to lead a more environmentally conscious, more sustainable life. Our idea was to mix topics from nature, sustainable development, climate change, urban living, lifestyle and culture, and create a fusion that targets a wide population. Our April issue was published yesterday, bringing you 230 pages of great content and beautiful photographs. Enjoy reading!
