Solutions Lab

Impulsouth will support the implementation of key climate initiatives led by young leaders from the public, private and civil society sectors in Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Madagascar, Niger, Uganda and Zambia through a solutions lab.

After being trained through a certified online course led by Impulsouth, 24 selected young professionals will integrate a solutions lab. The youth will receive seed funding, mentorship and peer-to-peer learning to develop solutions that respond to key climate challenges in their countries, identified during a previous research stage. The young professionals will also be able to apply for support to participate in international foras.
