young people’s involvement on climate change awareness, agency and action in schools and their
communities. The project involves young people of the age ranging 12-24 years in a participatory
research manner in collaboration with PhD students from UDSM, ARU, UCPH.
The project intends to increase young people’s involvement on climate change in understanding and
interpretation of the pre-disaster, climate change mitigation and adaptation on specific problems in
their areas hence identifying the effects that Climate Change brings in socio-economic activities.
