British Council Wales is seeking young volunteers from the construction industry to support its Low Carbon Futures – Challenge Europe Project, 2009/10 and we are recommending you!

It is an exciting opportunity for young people to work together and develop their innovative new ideas into tangible solutions to a broad variety of climate change and sustainable development issues.  CEW is supporting the project as part of its sustainability work and we believe this is an excellent chance for the members of 40 Below to do something constructive for the UK environment.

The British Council needs volunteers with expertise in key areas; therefore it might be an exercise to learn from as well very rewarding.  The idea is that volunteers provide some of their time and energy and the British Council supports them with some facilitation services and some travel and accommodation expenses to help them achieve such goals.

More details are available at http://challengeeurope.britishcouncil.org/, but the closing date for applications is 11 May 2009 and selection by the 15 May, so move fast if you’re interested.  The first UK-GB team meeting of Advocates, at its 2009/10 Launch, is anticipated for 12-13 June 2009.
