Indigenous Capacity for Climate Action (IC4CA): Developing green skills for tackling climate change  

This project is about the development of green skills for tackling climate change. It is premised on the background that students constitute an enduring source of indigenous capacity for tackling climate change. Noting the bureaucracy in the educational system with regards to curriculum upgrade, we used an innovative method for creating climate change learning spaces during the extra curriculum period, thereby achieving our project objective in spite of institutional barriers.

The activities carried out in this project included a baseline survey of students’ awareness on climate change, a field trip to Eko Atlantic City, and the development of green projects.

Specific outputs derived included climate change learning manuals, climate change ambassadors Face Book page for promoting climate change action among youths, and a scientific paper to guide policies on climate change action. A major lesson learnt from this project is that youthful energy drives climate change action.

Top 3 learnings:

  1. We take climate action now; the ripple effect is sure to be endless.
  2. We learnt that youthful energy is a major driver of climate change action.
  3. Communities embrace climate change action when they understand that it is for a greater good.
