Climate Change and Higher Education: Youth Activism in Central Asia
With the growing risks of climate change, how can young people contribute to addressing climate change in universities? This webinar will talk about how youth at two universities in Central Asia are making a difference through higher education engagement.
Relevant for staff and students of higher education institutions (HEIs), youth-serving organizations, and young changemakers, this webinar will help to:
- Clarify ways that universities and students can work together effectively to address climate change
- Highlight the potential and actual contributions of young people to advocacy effectively for climate change mitigation and response
The webinar will feature Sabit Mukhanov, Rector's Associate, Atyrau Oil and Gas University, Kazakhstan, as well as Meerim Samieva, graduate student and eco-activist, Kyrgyzstan.
This event will also include a short members meeting, which can serve as a great opportunity to learn more about the CoP and get engaged.
Presented by USAID's YouthPower 2: Learning and Evaluation Activity, the Higher Education Engagement and Transformation Community of Practice (CoP) serves youth, practitioners in youth-serving organizations, policymakers, and staff and students of higher education institutions.
This event will include English closed captioning (cc).
