Our City 2030 is part of WWF’s efforts to endorse sustainable cities, support learning and participation and reduce the Ecological footprint on our planet. The project focuses on strengthening youth capacity to engage on issues of climate change, education for sustainable development and disaster risk management. The project has been implemented in collaboration with PLAN International in Uganda, Rwanda, Zambia and the Philippines.
"When youth are given opportunities, resources, and a platform to speak, they give unexpected results"
"Youth involved had an understanding on 1.5C global warming, climate change, environmental protection, disaster risk reduction, and its relevance to their future"
"Inclusion of not only stakeholders but teachers, pupils, communities and local government in climate smart activities"
"Integrating climate change and sustainable development into school learning is very important for daily school operations"
