The Go Green Campaign is an initiative of ICYC, started in 2018, to encourage youth from the Asia and Pacific region to combat the global threat of climate change and its ever-lasting effects that it poses on future generations, by planting trees on International Mother Earth Day. Based on the belief and cooperative value of ‘Self-Help and Solidarity’, the campaign manifests that youth and cooperatives can be a part of something greater while sustaining their environment. This year, the Go Green Campaign 2.0, is co-led by the ICA Africa Youth Network and will see participation of youth from the Africa region as well, from 21st to 23rd April 2019. In order to share the detailed information about the campaign with young participants, an online workshop was held on 15th April 2019. It covered information about the background of Go Green Campaign, theme for this year - ‘Protect Our Species’, and use of banner, tool kit, and social media handles. The workshop was taken by the ICYC Chairperson, Mr. Ahsan Ali Thakur and was co-chaired by Ms. Hilda Ojjal, President of ICA Africa Youth Network. There were eight participants in the workshop from China, Nepal, Iran, Pakistan, India and Kenya.
