Challenge

Children are often excluded from the discussion on climate change and aren't made aware of the impact their actions can have on their communities and the broader move towards a low carbon future. They need to be brought together and given the space to work for the development of their neighborhoods, with the aim of developing capacities and promoting tools that will have the largest impact in their communities.

Solution

We will implement a scalable model to educate children in schools through art, tech and disruptive strategies oriented at adopting sustainable behaviors. We will provide a series of workshops with experts and change-makers to inspire children and establish a mentoring program in different areas, and we will co-create scalable and low cost solutions for their schools in areas like agriculture, renewable energy, waste management, sustainable construction, sustainable transport, water management.

Long-Term Impact

-Create an education model oriented to adopting sustainable behaviors in children and training the sustainable generation of future. -Make children's voices heard in current climate governance. -Engage tomorrow's decision makers today. -Increase children's resiliency and capacity to adapt to climate change. -Develop competences in children so they can create solutions to reduce emissions in their schools and neighborhoods. -Build an integrated network of sustainable schools.
