Here in Doha, Qatar, the second week of the UN climate negotiations is underway. The stakes are high. At these talks, world leaders decide what we will — or won’t — do about climate change. This is where the future of our species is being negotiated, with a deadline of 2015 to secure an agreement.
When I first learned about the negotiations, I thought about the world in which I want to raise my kids and knew I had to be there. I have traveled from Milton to Doha as a US youth delegate to take part in this process and advocate for my future.
