Climb it for Climate 2015 – The Australian Youth Climate Coalition in Nepal

Today I am heading back to ‪#‎Nepal‬, where I will spend the next three weeks traveling with a group of volunteers from @australianycc. The group are trekking to ‪#‎Everest‬ Base Camp to raise money for their organisation and a sister organisation in Nepal, the ‪#‎Himalayan‬ Climate Initiative.

I’ll be posting directly to the @australianycc account while we trek, travel and see the effects of ‪#‎climate‬ change on the Himalayan landscape and people. Follow the ‪#‎AYCC‬ account to see the group’s journey.
