YOUTH LEADERSHIP

The youth of today are the citizens and leaders of tomorrow.
How can we best equip them for the ‘tomorrow’ that they will be inheriting?

Project 90 by 2030 works with young South Africans (by creating Leadership Clubs in schools) to build, both their climate change knowledge and their capacity to drive low-carbon actions within their school community.

Currently we are working with 15 school-based Leadership Clubs in the Western Cape and in KwaZulu-Natal.

The Leadership Clubs are supported by dedicated educators and mentors.

Each year, the Clubs commit to low-carbon projects and hosting Days of Actions that raise awareness about climate change and inspire low-carbon action within their school communities.

We also see the immense value and importance of positive role models. Project 90 invests in the development of young role models, who lead by example, as mentors to the school-based Leadership Clubs. We are currently building the capacity of nine such individuals – a number of whom have emerged as leaders from the school-based Leadership Clubs initiative.
