On 26th of September, Impulsouth participated at the Africa Climate Week 2021 with the event Youth Empowerment on Climate Transparency and Green Recovery.
The event brought together seven initiatives and institutions working to empower young professionals to become the next generation of climate leaders and green entrepreneurs.
Youth initiatives from Cameroon, Gambia, Ghana and Tunisia, as well as initiatives from the Malagasy government and the UN Climate Change Learning partnership presented opportunities and tools available for youth to take the lead of climate action in the continent. A young council established in Ghana has been able to influence policy and an integrated strategy to tackle climate change has been developed in Madagascar by including Climate change in the education curricula at all levels, even for non-scholarised children.
