" Climate Change is a global challenge that transcends national borders yet not all countries or communities experience its repercussions similarly. The Millennium Fellowship provides a network of determined, climate conscious, young, and intelligent global leaders whose collective efforts and perseverance are key in creating a more sustainable and equitable world. There is no question of hierarchy when it comes to the drive to protect planet earth- we are all equally furious and no one gets left behind. ” "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Climate Change Course Manual
The Climate Change Course Manual aims to create a holistic guide for educators and civil society organisations on the topic of climate change to be imparted to school students. This guide will serve as a starting point to initiate important discussions surrounding climate change in academic as well as non-academic spaces. It will enable to foster a community of individuals/students with climate literacy, integral to future activism and action. The project aims to come up with a non-exhaustive collection of training material and resources as well as create potential guidelines for assessment.
