YCLIP is a platform where young people have the opportunity to learn, build skills, and exchange ideas on their role in enabling climate action and to explore thinking tools to ideate and validate innovative solutions for climate mitigation and adaptation within a selected thematic area. The Program generally focuses on five (5) thematic Areas; Climate Change and Sustainable Development, Waste Management, Biodiversity conservation, Forest Restoration and Climate Resilient Agricultural.
This program is targeted at undergraduate students interested in climate action, policy, and international climate development. The program is scheduled for a period of 3 months and is structured in such a way that students are engaged during the long vacation of tertiary institutions. The program also serves as an internship opportunity for the selected students. Upon successful completion of the thematic modules, students are posted to a climate change affected community to research and embark on their project ideas.
