Joint Call for Applications – Climate Ninjas Program | Bridging the Gap: Empowering Youth from Knowledge to Action
Dear Indian Youth Climate Network,
As we all may be aware, the IYCN kicked off this year with a resounding commitment to strategic priorities identified during the Annual Planning Weekend 2023, where we invited active members, advisors, alumni, and youth leaders who were leading climate actions initiatives on ground.
These priorities are not just a focus for us; they are the driving force behind the youth climate solutions movement in India:
- Climate Change Communications
- Sustainable Lifestyle & Circular Economy
- Green Sector Jobs/Opportunities
In these critical areas, there is a noticeable gap that the youth must fill. These priorities are not merely points on Youth’s agenda; they are the key components that will drive Bharat towards a sustainable future.
As we embark on this transformative journey in the realm of climate action, Many attendees from past workshops have now become our partners and taken leadership roles, leading Agents of Change in their respective cities. We also recognize that many eager young minds and passionate volunteers were unable to participate in Agents of Change capacity building workshops and also missed the opportunity to participate in the upcoming LCOY India 2023 due to overwhelming response from across the nation. We understand your burning desire to learn, and translate that knowledge into action, and we’re here to help you do just that.
Following the triumphant launch of the Indian Youth Circular Economy Forum (IYCEF) and Circular Campus Initiative (CCI), we are excited to introduce the next and most important chapter to strengthen the Indian Youth Climate Solutions Movement – A joint call for applications with Sustainability Mafia for Climate Ninja Programs that will propel you into the forefront of tomorrow’s climate leaders.
Why Climate Ninjas?
Our world is at a critical juncture when it comes to climate change, and sustainability has become the guiding principle of our times. The urgency of climate challenges is growing, and the need for brilliant minds to address these challenges is greater than ever. However, there exists a gap between the urgency of these sustainability issues and a clear path for individuals to enter this field. Many students and young people ask themselves questions like, “How do I navigate this complex landscape? What do terms like COP, Net Zero, and Carbon Credits mean? Where do I begin my journey to combat climate change?”
