Application

Md Sukur Salek, you can apply to join the conference by clicking on the link below. Because this is a conference on the environment, they are looking for a summary of your school or community environmental project and how it is making a difference. Or, you can describe the environmental issues in your community, and how you and other children are helping to solve it. Best of luck.
