Published on

Founded upon our Delegation to UNFCCC COP13 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in 2007, we are university students who wish to collectively help build a just and sustainable world. We are the organizers of the first Asian Youth Climate Summit in 2008 and were formerly known as the Hong Kong Climate Change Coalition, before we started establishing regional boards in Macau and other areas of China in September 2009. We are currently based at the University of Hong Kong. We are a party to the Youth Constituency officially recognized by the UNFCCC Secretary.
This slideshow shows the story from one of the member -Serena Gao's perspective and experience, and aims to introduce some how the network operates, provides its services, its structure and what each of the new coming members needs to be able to do (open-source administration)

  43. 43. Enacting Change – “Change”?<br />A: what are the solutions we are promoting for climate change?<br />B: We need to change people’s mindset. <br />A: what is mindset?<br />B: A belief…<br />A: It seems to belief is a set of value system. By telling me to change my mindset, you seem to assume that you have a better set of values than I have.<br /> How would you feel if I come to tell you that you need to change your mindset because I have better values than you? <br />B: I will feel OK because I would only analyze what you say and learn from you. <br />A: I disagree. I think people will not be willing to accept whatever you propose. If identity is a buddle of value we identify ourselves with, then I would more likely retract and defend my view because what you are proposing is a different view which is threatening my identity. In fact, as I was speaking of all these, this may be happening now. <br />B: But I still see that I will not retract, rather, I will analyze it and try to accept your point of view and learn from that….<br />A: Are you feeling I am actually intentionally saying something to change what you think? <br />B: No. I will use my rationality……<br />

  49. 49. CHANGE<br />1- Preserve Status Quo<br /> - Assume things are going to go bad<br />2- Go back to a time in the past<br /> - Assume past is better than now, <br /> - Assume when past do come to now,<br /> it will remain in “now” rather than past.<br />3- Form a picture of how the world should look like in the future, and we want others all to buy into that picture.<br /> - Assume your picture (or your capacity to form a picture) <br /> of the world is better.<br />

  52. 52. Any of our physical gatherings are called national forums. <br /> Anyone, public or members, whether or not directly involved in the running of the network of projects, can initiate, design agenda or the procedures of any forms of the forum, anyone can walk in and play a role in the decision-making process. <br />
  53. 53.  <br />Social Activities<br />Any members can organise social activities, the most essential form of our network. If it involves public, the event can be published upon approval of the plan by Secretary.<br /> <br />Open Forum <br />Anyone can initiate any of such meeting and submit agenda items to the Secretary one week in advance. <br />Public wishing to attend can walk in anytime. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Bohm Dialogue<br />This type of forum is free-flow, open to anyone and can be initiated anytime during or independently of other forms of forums. The main characteristic is that participants are highly aware of the assumptions underlying their statements and consciously hold them up for examinations. More<br />
