This December U.S. climate leadership will face a critical test. In Copenhagen, Denmark, the international community will meet for the final time before the Kyoto Protocol expires. The goal of this conference is to produce a Copenhagen Protocol to prevent catastrophic climate change. U.S. leadership in these negotiations is paramount. President Obama must hear the voice of America’s younger generation, critical to the success of his party in the latest elections, on the course his administration should take in these negotiations. Expedition Copenhagen, December 7-18, 2009 The Will Steger Foundation is embarking on a new kind of expedition; one that brings youth voices to the global climate negotiations in Copenhagen. We will: lead a Midwest Youth delegation to Copenhagen with support from U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar; create an interdisciplinary standards-linked curriculum for grades 9 – 12 in partnership with the National Education Association; and provide multimedia blogs and real-time communications between youth delegates and classrooms in the U.S.
