We have a Challenge Badges which we would like to be translated into Chinese: Climate Change CB (http://www.fao.org/3/a-i5216e.pdf).The task should take around 12 hours a week for up to 4 weeks, though we are happy to adjust this to suit the volunteers' schedule. The volunteer will be duly credited in each publication. We will be in touch with the volunteer via email, telephone or Skype (as preferred) to coordinate our collaboration, answer questions and provide any support needed.
YUNGA is a partnership between United Nations agencies, civil society organizations and other entities that work with children and young people. It acts as a gateway for children and youth from around the world to participate in the activities and initiatives of the United Nations. We seeks to empower children and young people to have a greater role in society, raise awareness and become active agents of change. Providing the Climate Change Challenge Badge in Chinese is an important step in that direction. With the volunteers' help, YUNGA's Challenge Badges will be accessible to a large community of Chinese speaking children and young people. The engagement of youths next generation in social and environmental issues is of high importance for the promotion of global and lasting sustainability.
