Plant-for-the-Planet Academy Durban (South Africa), 23 July 2011

Today we were back at the Natural Science Museum in Durban. Children from seven different schools came together there. Some of the groups made spontaneous performances (VIDEO), which contributed to improving the already positive atmosphere. In the course of their presentation of the “worldcafe” results, one group presented their brilliant new motto for COP 17 in Durban: PUSH – Planting until something happens!

Durban now has 90 new Climate Justice Ambassadors who are fighting for their future.

At the end of the Academy the following people came together: Carlene, Bev, Liz, Siobhan, Tresor and Martin. These are the adults who will support the children with their preparations for Durban COP 17.

We are both excited and curious to see what initiatives the children have planned between November 28th – December 9th for COP 17. Today we also visited the ICC, where the climate summit will take place.
