We are close to the final of the COP22 and most of us all expected about the result of this conference. But to be relax and rest about negotiation today we decide to have meeting on the morning with young people from Oum Hani School here in Marrakech. We were sharing and exchanging some experience from differents global projects.
First Imane Ait Bensalem (Morocco) and Paulo Lima (Brazil) started talking about a global project call The New Voice Of Climat financed by Enel Green Power. This project it´s was a result of the partnership between Viracao&Jangada (Italy) and Tribe of Why (Morocco). This project was working with ten high school from Marrakech, and the main objective of this was to engage people to be youth reporters for COY12 and COP22. As a plus of experience on COY12 this youngers had the possibility to share the conference with student from Brazil and Italy and write articles together and share their own experiences.

That´s is the reason than they support The New Voice of Climate project and Youth Press Agency on this year.
And to conclude this amazing meeting people from Liter of Life presented their project about to provide affordable, sustainable solar light to people with limited or no access to electricity. Also they try teach marginalized communities how to use recycled plastic bottles and locally sources materials to illuminate their homes, businesses and streets.
