Global COY6 – Cancún

with No Comments

Held at the Universidad del Caribe in Cancun, it included delegations from over 35 countries and totalling just over 400 youth, who fund-raised and paid their own way to the conference. COY6 was organized by a group of Mexican and international volunteers - total of 25 in number - who met virtually for months and worked hard as a team to put together the event, even though most had never met in person before.It included keynote speakers such as Tony Oposa and Bill McKibben. It was also the very first Spanish and English bilingual COY!COY6 set the stage for the beginnings of more long term strategy discussions between the youth.
