Are you passionate about the environment? Are you interested in creating tangible community actions towards tackling global issues locally? Here is an exciting opportunity.
U-recycle Initiative is searching for 6 emerging change agents who are enthusiastic about environmental sustainability and ocean protection, and who through this AY4E fellowship can build their capacity and implement grassroots solutions to address plastic pollution.
“The African Youth for Environment (AY4E) Fellowship” is a comprehensive environmental education and awareness project powered by U-recycle Initiative and funded by a National Geographic Society grant. AY4E focuses on influencing positive behavioural changes towards tackling issues of plastic pollution in Nigeria. The Fellowship empowers youth and high school students across Nigeria with knowledge, skills and tools to begin developing actionable solutions at the grassroots level to combat plastic pollution.
Through our ‘AY4E Fellowship’, we plan to coach 6 young people who will then enlighten and engage over 6,000 high-school students in 6 schools across the 6 geographical zones in Nigeria, through creative environmental education projects.
LEARN from experts, successful environmental advocates and climate activists through masterclasses on the issue of plastic pollution and how to develop and implement projects.
IMPLEMENT five awareness projects (school eco-talk, environmental club, movie screening, changemakers’ bootcamp and upcycling project) at a high school in your state.
This is an eight-month fully-funded (April – December) program that provides emerging environmentalists, green enthusiasts, environmental advocates, and climate change activists with a unique opportunity to implement creative grassroots solutions to address environmental pollution.
