This year’s theme will focus on climate change to reflect the current global challenge. Rising global temperature and change in weather patterns have shown the impacts of climate change, which would have significant effect on agriculture, economy and social well-being. Brunei Darussalam is no exception from the impacts of climate change, as can be seen and felt from the rising temperatures and natural disasters. It is imperative that we continuously encourage climate change discourse to enable the public to make more conscious decisions and take actions towards combating this global challenge.
GLC7 will be open to 40 youth aged between 15 to 35 years old. During GLC7, participants will be exposed to the various elements of climate change, learn from experts in the field and work together towards developing ideas and to take action. The camp will be conducted through panel discussions, field trips and outdoor activities. Participants are expected to organise follow up projects or community service with the support from Green Brunei after the programme.
