ISS Students take part in Local Conference of Youth on Climate Change (LCOY)
This local conference which took part during the school holidays 26th – 28th August was to enable the youth to learn about new developments, challenges and solutions associated with the climate crisis. Climate experts and guest speakers shared their knowledge with the students and Terron Dang Kowe, Vanshika Parikh, Srimugan Sankar and Yan Luc Morel signed up to attend the conference virtually. The LCOY was organised by two ISS ex pupils Jeremy Raguain and Victoria Alis who work and volunteer within Seychelles’ conservation, tourism, sustainability and sectors. Their aim for this LCOY was to inform and consult Seychelles youth on climate change so in attending the Youth for Climate conference which will take place Milan at the end of September as part of the Pre-Conference of Parties (Pre COP) they have Seychelles young people’s views in mind.
