Climate Change (Environment)
Climate Change (Environment) Initiatives
A project that helps to lower the carbon footprint of your community.
Around the world, young people are experiencing the effects of the changing climate change first-hand. Climate anxiety is real, but there is hope. By taking the lead and working together to act against climate change, you and your project can be part of the solution for a sustainable future.
Examples of past projects applicable to this theme:
- Do an energy audit of your school and see how your school can reduce its energy use
- Lead a climate march in your community to bring awareness to the issue
- Host a tree planting day to increase tree cover and the sequestration of carbon
Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots
Do great things in your community.
Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in more than 50 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
