Millennium Fellowship Project: Project ClimateLearn
Project ClimateLearn is a youth-led non-profit that leverages digital media to promote and sustain informed climate action among Nigerian youths, beginning in the University of Ibadan campus. We will achieve this by putting programmes together such as:
1. A robust online climate awareness campaign targeted at undergraduate students of the University of Ibadan using posters and videos with contextually relevant content in order to: enlighten the student community on climate change; inspire them to commit to simple climate action; and highlight the need for innovative climate solutions.
2. Sharing engaging prose and poetry from volunteer writers, that would spur meaningful
conversations on climate change within the online student community.
3. Creating a designated online platform where students can make climate action pledges that can be shared with friends to show support for the project and ultimately, SDG 13.
4. Collaboration with the Student Union, as well as popular student organisations on
campus such as Enactus and Pick It Recycling Club and RecycleGarb, a renowned non governmental organization in Ibadan dedicated to environmental sustainability, to achieve maximum visibility and impact.
