The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) continues its Youth Climate Innovation Labs, which took place already in Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America.
“It is very important to support young people to engage in climate action, and this programme provides them with the tools and diverse partnerships to create solutions. This programme has been a big success in different regions, and it has challenged the youth to think outside of the box and co-create ideas for climate mitigation and adaptation solutions aligned with countries' Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs),” noted Dr. Rose Mwebaza, CTCN Director.
The Climate Innovation Labs is a fast paced three-day online event that brings together selected youth participants as well as climate technology experts within the selected sectors and technology fields in the region to explore innovative design thinking tools, flexing their entrepreneurial muscles and creating solutions for enhanced climate action. At the end of the Climate Innovation Labs, the selected participants are provided follow-on support to implement and scale selected solutions through a 6-8 week Climate Innovation Academy Programme delivered by the CTCN partner Seedstars.
