Climate change is one of the biggest issues of our time, and it is one we have to take a stand to and involve ourselves in. Climate Teams learn and teach together along with Vincentians and people from all over the world about Climate Change. The aim of this program is to spread awareness and knowledge in the communities of St. Vincent and the Grenadines about the possible solutions for a healthier country, and of course- a healthier planet.
During the program, the Climate Activists reach schools and communities around the islands. By working together with the communities, media and active community leaders - the activists participate in developing different environmental projects.
You can also be part of these efforts towards a better reality for everybody.
