Well, for the second year in a row, I do feel a little bit rejected. This is the email I received today from The Climate Project;
We would like to thank you sincerely for your interest in the Asia – Pacific Summit with The Climate Project – Australia. Unfortunately you have not been selected to join the Melbourne session and we understand that this will be disappointing news.
The Climate Project – Australia received an unprecedented response for applications for the training session with Al Gore. Over 2,000 committed people from 22 countries applied and we, together with our US colleagues, had the difficult task of choosing just 300 people to take part in the Summit.
Please know that each application went through a rigorous evaluation process and while it was a challenging (given the high quality of applicants and our need to get a strong geographic and societal representation), the decision is final.
Due to the sheer number of applicants and our limited resources we are not able to give you personal feedback on your application.
We do however have a large job to do together to affect a result at Copenhagen that ensures us a safe and prosperous future.
So in other words, thanks but no thanks. Maybe next year?
