My Travel Story

by: Carlos Montemayor Start Date: Jun 6, 2017 - End Date: Jun 30, 2017
I am a current 10th grader from the Philippines. I have a lot of beliefs and visions for my region, Southeast Asia. I believe that our country, our region is a potential economic powerhouse that can be the global leader in development in all sectors in the future. One of my main beliefs is that going the path of Green Growth will help our region, as well as the whole world, develop most efficiently with it being way more beneficial, and its disadvantages greatly outweighed by the benefits. This will not just be beneficial for us, but also for the environment and the Earth, our home.

I am hoping to be a potential leader in this sector to help my community undertake this pathway to Green Growth. As I said, its benefits far outweigh its drawback, if those even exist.

Event proper: The International Capacity Building Workshop on Green Growth will train future youth leaders in the said topic. Youth leaders will also be trained and will receive leadership training and development, specifically in issues involving "...a greener planet, liveable cities, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability, causes and impacts, education and awareness strategies and policies."

My personal advocacy for Green Growth and the said Workshop in Malaysia, will work together to make me a better leader in my community in the future and make me more informed and founded on the principles that will make my community's economy flourish, while not sacrificing the environment at the cost of development.
