Crusader heads for Mexico By VANITA PRASAD Environmental crusader: Glendene teenager Chelsea Robinson wants to protect the environment. ' It's all about civil empowerment this time round. There's a whole lot of brilliant stuff going on down there with a lot of protesting. ' Chelsea Robinson Youth delegate She may only be 18 but this former Rutherford College student knows a thing or two about the realities of global environmental politics. Chelsea Robinson is one of 12 New Zealand youth delegates who will be flying to Cancun, Mexico for the COP16 United Nations Cli- mate Change Summit on November 21. The group of young Kiwis are responsible for ensuring New Zealand s youth are informed about climate change and have a voice at the summit. Chelsea says its not an easy road to Cancun because the delegates need to fund their own journeys. The group needs to raise $65,000 for the trip to cover costs of about $6000 each. Its not exactly an easy thing to do on a student budget, the Victoria Univer- sity student says. She s anticipating real dif- ference to be made from this year s summit, unlike last year s Copenhagen confer- ence which left her disap- pointed. There was a kind of global environmental depression after that summit, Chelsea says. For me it was a mixed bag of disappointment, frus- tration and hope. At the summit this year she predicts the focus will shift away from environ- mental targets, a topic which dominated last year s discus- sions. This year will be about putting processes of action into place -- it will be more gritty and getting down to business. Chelsea, who lives at home in Glendene when she is not at university, says the spirit of climate change in Latin America reflects the new atti- tude of the cause. It s all about civil empowerment this time round. There s a whole lot of brilliant stuff going on down there with a lot of protest- ing. She says this year s protests where New Zealand- ers marched against mining at national parks proved that people power does matter. She says the current New Zealand government could do better on climate change. Our position is pretty average and actually very disappointing because as a nation we are in a very good position to make real change, she says. We have the potential to be running completely on renewable resources yet we lack the courage to bring it home. Visit www. youth delegation.org.nz to sponsor Chelsea.
