    A T&T national is among 100 young people from around the world chosen to attend the first ever Youth Climate Summit at the United Nations (UN).

    The UN says Mareeka Dookie and two other Caribbean youth activists won a ‘Green Ticket’ to go to the event at the UN Headquarters in New York on Saturday 21st September, 2019.

    The Youth Climate Summit is a platform for young leaders to showcase their solutions on a global stage and engage directly with decision-makers on the defining issue of our time.

    The outcomes will be presented at the 2019 UN Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit on Monday 23rd September, 2019.
