What we do in the near future is up to you!
Only if hundreds of millions of people become activists to fight climate change and the destructive force of the current global economy with education and compassionate action, are we able to save the situation.
We all are responsible for the future of the planet, ourselves, the young ones, future generations and the beautiful species we share our planet with, including many that are at the point of extinction through the carelessness of our behaviour.
Together with SDG´s Academy Pakistan we have finalised a pilot project in Pakistan, based on contributions by us and teachers from Pakistan. Participants were teachers, staff and higher grade students from The Meritorious school.The results of this pilot project is that SDG´s Academy via their connections have made a plan to reach out to a huge network of schools in Pakistan with this program. This project is planned to run from the middle of May till the end of august this year, and will include signing legally binding contract for our collaboration and having our course approved by a Certification Body in Pakistan. One of the main Pakistani teachers has recently joined our team.
In India we have finalized a first round of 12 sessions with about a dozen participants, among which several engineers. The last few sessions we talked about implementing climate education projects which started and increased several projects in several states involving several schools. The projects were all halted due to the COVID crisis but we hope they can be revived from July onwards. The team leader of WCS got severe COVID together with his family and we need to await his recovery
A Bangladeshi person with Climate Reality Leadership background has joined our team. She is a migrant, living in Finland, and has a background in law – especially environmental and arctic law. Recently she has started a WCS program in Bangladesh, having success with motivating teachers from her former university to include climate change and environmental law in their teachings. In addition she is working on a second batch which includes teachers from many different fields.
A WCS team member had a background living in Zimbabwe, and established at an early stage a NGO with focus on climate education in Zimbabwe. A Zimbabwean woman in charge of this NGO has now also become member of our core team in Norway. She is very passionate about our educational program, and has a teachers background. She has also taken on the task of being coordinator for our work in Africa. But as you probably know, Zimbabwe is extremely poor, and being able to donate a laptop to her has high priority in our team. The same goes for our representative in Kenya:
From Kenya we have been joined by an enthusiastic teacher who is already giving climate education combined with school and village projects of tree planting and permaculture practices. He, too, is now a member of our core team.
If you don´t consider yourself able to contribute to our work with personal involvement and skills, or with direct action on climate change, we will of course be very grateful for donations. Our main necessities are for educational materials, internet capabilities and very modest salaries of climate teachers in African countries.
