Climate change is causing drought in many regions.

“Tomorrow begins from today” will be the theme of the Forum of Youth and Sustainable Development in Vietnam in 2010, which will be held in the northern province of Ninh Binh from Aug. 21-27.

The forum, the second of its kind, will be the highlight of the campaign “Linking the ecological hands to Green Generation” to mark the 1,000th birthday of Thang Long-Hanoi and the International Day of Action against Climate Change in October.

The forum is aimed at improving the role of young people in the fight against climate change in Vietnam and around the globe as well.

Over 60 young students and pupils from 15 cities and provinces will attend the forum.

Participants will have opportunities to improve their knowledge and skills in coping with climate change and sustainable development issues relating to the poor and persons vulnerable to injury and share experiences in taking the role as “green messengers”.

The forum will be held under the sponsorship of Oxfam, CARE, the British Council and the British Embassy in Vietnam.
