Youth Empowerment

More than one-fifth of the total population in South Asia is under the age of 30. With a large youth demographic of young population, they play a pivotal role in playing a strong anchor towards fighting against climate change. This generation has high capacity building through their youth-led decision making. Empowering them takes utmost importance to transform our societies into green communities looking towards a climate resilient future. 
                                                                                                            
The Climate Project Foundation is constantly working towards creating green leaders through our youth led programs. The India and South Asia branch works actively to conduct workshops and events with school campuses and university students to bring about a transformative change in their outlook. With our programs like Youth For Earth, we have youth coming from South-Asia with their impact driven projects; aiming to solve a climate-led problem in their local communities.

Youth For Earth

Youth For Earth is a collaborative initiative of Mobius Foundation and The Climate Project Foundation, started in the year 2019. Youth For Earth Championship offers a platform to the youth to come forward with their plan of action and contribute towards mitigating the climate crisis. The students  were motivated to come up with innovative solutions, technological inventions for their on-ground project activities.

In the last two editions, we have seen some inspiring and impactful youth-led stories where students took up a project on the environmental problems around their community or campus and worked on its solutions to bring about a change. The projects were chosen keeping the Sustainable Development Goals in mind. These students were recognised Nationally and Internationally and awarded for their efforts and commendable work.
