Climate change Education:

To fight climate change we need a well-trained and motivated young person (you!) who carries out informal or organized educational activities with their peers (similar in age, background, interests), to develop their knowledge, attitudes, and skills and enabling them to understand about environmental care through water and waste management practices, management of ecosystems for food security and better use of available energy sources and technologies for sustainable livelihood.

Our purpose is to train youth as a peer trainers, in fronting practices for best for conserving communities to reduce energy poverty, improve food sufficiency and nutritional behavior, adopting environmentally friendly mobility options as cycling and walking to include mass public transport (BRT, LRT, SGR) through advocacy programs as well as capacity training.

 

What Sustainable Development Goals Mean for Young people:

Climate-JusticeWith young people accounting for more than 78 per cent of the total population in Uganda – for the SDGs consultations to be meaningful they need to give youth a meaningful say, so that the SDGs encourage policies, investments, and data collection to better serve the needs and interests of today’s and tomorrow’s generation of young people.

Engaging youth is crucial to raise ambition of governments to come to an agreement on new climate change regimes.

 

 

Tackling climate change requires concerted coordinated government action as well as conscious and informed efforts by individuals. Therefore, it is essential to strengthen both formal and informal education on climate change and viable lifestyles.
