As the green envoy chosen by Oxfam Hong Kong, Xiao Xin, 24, went to Copenhagen for the 12-day United Nations Climate Change Conference.

On Dec.16, Xiao Xin was invited to attend a forum organized by UNICEF and the Red Cross on the theme "Leaders of today Leaders of tomorrow: a dialogue on climate." She recorded her impressions of the meeting in her blog.

The Leadership Forum was not in our usual meeting place, the Bella Center, but somewhere I had never heard of. To do our bit for cutting emissions Binbin and I decided to walk from the subway station. We were caught in a heavy snowstorm, Copenhagen's first snow of the year! The snow was blowing in our faces and we had to duck our heads to walk. Now I know what Northern Europe is really like.

Binbin's snapshot of me. My hair was all wet and my face was frozen stiff.

When we got there, my hair was wet and I felt very awkward as I hurried on to the platform. Just then the woman beside me turned around, gave me a warm smile, and offered me her hand. It had been a bitterly cold walk but her kindness bucked me up.
