We're going to Norway!
M has been selected as one of 30 kids in North America and 300 worldwide to attend the Tunza International Children's Conference on the Environment in Stavanger, Norway this June. I have also been approved as a chaperone. The conference is sponsored by the United Nations and the kids will prepare a statement which will be presented to world leaders. The UN has a mandate to consider the opinion of children when making decisions affecting the environment. Our M will have a chance, at the age of 11, to influence world leaders! So if you have anything you want them to hear, just tell M before June.
