2010 Youth Summit Starts with a Bang!

Hello everyone! I am here on the second day of the 2010 youth summit program. As today kicks off we will be experiencing many different speakers and activities including negotiations on G8 topics and canoeing lessons. The Official program of my summit kicked off yesterday evening during the welcome dinner, which included presentations from, Mr. Terry Clifford, Mr. Tony Clement, the Canadian youth ambassadors, and Mr. Paul Tergat who was our keynote speaker. The delegations had an excellent chance to mingle and to meet others from around the globe. Upon concluding the ceremonies last night everyone retired to their rooms to rest up for the big day today. This morning we will be transported to the Trillium Resort to partake in a few plenary discussions including nuclear non-proliferation, food security, as well as maternal and child health. Along with these three plenary discussions we will have two negotiations later in the day that will be on the issues of nuclear non-proliferation and food security. Finally the day will be concluded with a cruise and dinner reception. Post written by Drew Luhowy as part of 2010 Youth Ambassador blog project.
