Climate Change Conference 2018 – COP24

From 2nd to 14th December, the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP24) took place in Katowice, Poland. It was the 11th Climate Conference where Brahma Kumaris (BK) is actively participating. Our BK green youngsters arrived previously on Wednesday 28th. and joined the Conference of Youth (COY), which was held before the UN governmental event. The BK preparations for this COP had been intense and, right from the beginning, the Polish BK family had been whole heartedly involved. For one year, the preparatory team held many meetings with organizations and activists. They also participated in a number of climate camps and conferences.
