Environmental education course "Community-based program for students".
We invite you to take part in this course to empower yourself as a leader and changemaker in your school or community, participating in local, regional and/or national initiatives.
Faced with the increasingly evident need to cope with the effects of climate change, being informed, prepared and ready to act is more than essential.
Contributing to the development of a culture of mitigation and adaptation to climate change is a task that starts at school. For this reason, Green Dreams, with the support of UNESCO, have developed the climate change course "Generation of Changemakers", with the aim of strengthening the skills of its participants, students and youth in basic education, as agents of action and change in relation to climate change.
Therefore, if you are between 16 and 25, and you are interested in strengthening yourself as a leader and participatory agent in your locality and/or region, we invite you to participate in the first edition of the virtual program on climate change "Generation of Changemakers".
