Together with the 2050 Climate Group in Scotland we are implementing a project on youth engagement in climate action called the Young Leaders’ Climate Change Project, now in its second year. The aim of the project is to equip young Malawians with opportunities to increase their knowledge on climate change challenges and solutions. It also empowers them to be confident, capable leaders who are prepared to take action, influence (local) policy makers and create long-lasting change towards a sustainable future for Malawi.
The project is seeking to recruit 40 young people to be engaged as volunteer Climate Change Young Leaders. The Young Leaders will undergo training and be challenged to propel a movement on climate change issues within their communities and beyond. They will also be linked to the National Youth Network on Climate Change and will be co-supervised by MaSP and the National Youth Council of Malawi.
