BC ICCs in ACTION for OUR FUTURE!

Attending the session on Low-Carbon Asia: Visions and Actions allowed me to have a better insights on the take of Japan on Carbon Emission. During the Q&A, I raised the question on “Is it possible to achieve Carbon Free emission and not only reducing on CO2 emission. After all, by reducing carbon emission, there’s still emission done”.

Raising a burning question to the panelists

  • Reply from the panelist was:
    • By doing so, it may lose our opportunities in economic growth. Thus, we have to balance the scale of economic development VS environmental conservation
    • It may cost a lot for country to invest on the green technology

After the session, I’m able to get in talk with Mr Ohki Hiroshi, President for COP3, to get him to share on his perspective on youth involvement in UN Summit. I really learnt alot from his conversation

With Mr Ohki Hiroshi, President of COP3

Rewarding day for me!
