Frozen paths in Russia rarely lead to dry Kenyan highlands - or India's steaming tropics. But for three days in February 2005, UNEP hosted young veterans of its 2003 Tunza International Youth Conference in Dubna, Russia at a Tunza Global Youth Retreat in Nairobi - on the way to Bangalore.
The 44 youth leaders from 35 countries looked at how young people could contribute towards achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in their own countries. They had a roundtable discussion with environment ministers and senior UNEP officials to talk about getting young people more involved in implementing them.
They made both collective and individual commitments that they aim to achieve between now and the 2005 Tunza International Youth Conference in Bangalore in October. These commitments - the 'Road to Bangalore'- are based on the Ten Tunza Commitments adopted in Dubna to promote sustainable lifestyles.

At the next Tunza International Youth Conference in Bangalore in October delegates will report back on their success in achieving their commitments.
