DGS delegate to Global Youth Summit in South Korea

Rudie Sweetnam (2 White) was one of six worldwide delegates selected to attend the Global Youth for Environment Leadership Summit (GYELS) in Seoul, South Korea at the end of January 2016.

“We went to Seoul University on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th to attend lectures and workgroups.

Tuesday’s lectures were presented by

  • Dr Sunjin Yun (Vice Dean of Graduate School of Environmental Studies),
  • Prof Myoungiu Lee (Professor of Myongji University),
  • H.E Gerhard Sabahil (EU Ambassador) and
  • H.E Thomas Lehmann (Danish Ambassador).

We were put in teams and I was selected as the leader for my group. We drafted a resolution on ‘How Stakeholders Can Eliminate Global Warming’.

My week in Seoul was one I will remember for a very long time. I made new friends from many parts of the world including South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Myanmar, India, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Kenya, United Araba Emirates, Mexico, Thailand and Bahrain.”
