Summary

Children not only will have to assume the consequences of a warming planet but also will hold solutions to adapt to a changing environment. We will educate 1 thousand children using disruptive methods about personal actions to reduce emissions, we will connect them with experts and change makers to inspire their future careers and we will co-create solutions in their schools to reduce emissions in areas such as renewable energy, waste management, mobility, urban agriculture, among others.

Challenge

Children not only will have to assume the consequences of a warming planet but also will hold solutions to adapt to a changing environment. Children are excluded of climate governance, they cannot make their voices to be heard, and education is not mean to prepare them for facing those challenges. Since children will be in the forefront of climate change and also the most vulnerable, they need not only to learn how to become more resilient but also learn how to build a low carbon future.

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

Education model oriented to adopting sustainable behaviors in children; training the sustainable generation of future. Make children voices to be heard in the current climate governance. Children participating in the program will be the decision makers of the future. Increasing resilience capacity in children to adapt to climate change. Develop competences in children so they can create solutions to reduce emissions in their schools, families context and in future. Network of sustainable schools
