The Malawi’s Climate Leaders project will engage young Malawians with the social, economic and environmental challenges posed by climate change impacts in their communities, such as droughts, flooding and soil degradation. Through this programme, participants will develop their leadership skills and understanding of climate change impacts. This empowers them to take action in their personal and professional lives and make the world a better place through climate action!
We will co-design our programme of activities in collaboration with a Steering Committee, comprising of young Malawians (aged 18-35). Activities could include training courses on climate action, personal and leadership development and networking opportunities.
These activities will be open to Young Leaders in Malawi who will soon be able to apply to get involved. We aim to be inclusive towards young people from all socio-economic and geographical regions and hope to be engaging with young people all over Malawi.
We are very excited about this great opportunity for mutual learning and we hope to build a strong network of engaged young people in Scotland and Malawi!
