2010 Activities

Marching Forward: GLM 2010

The 2010 Green Long March broadened awareness of climate change and the diversity of solutions that can be implemented to address these issues at the regional level. The March provided a platform for students, government, NGOs and corporations to discuss these issues and promote best practices across the country.

National and Regional Training

National and regional training increases student knowledge of key climate change issues and strengthens leadership skills. Teams of students trained in Beijing conduct regional training sessions across the country. These sessions provide student volunteers with skills needed to conduct quality projects in their regions.
