The Strategic Youth Network for Development (SYND) has successfully trained 30 enthusiastic young individuals in climate action, elevating their capacity to effect change at the grassroots level.

The transformative training took place in June and aims to combat climate change through active youth engagement at the local level.

During the gathering, participants exchanged valuable insights gained from their interactions with local assemblies, shedding light on their impactful contributions.

Isabel Nana Yam Yaa Andam, the focal lead, of SYND, expressed her concern that many young people merely observe climate issues without actively participating. She emphasized SYND’s commitment to galvanizing youth involvement in the relentless battle for climate justice.

This training endeavor seeks to enlighten young minds about leveraging legal provisions to actively contribute to climate initiatives within their respective assemblies.

It emphasizes the civic responsibility of the younger generation and underscores the importance of their active engagement.

Isabelle Nana Yam Andam elucidated, “Youth participation entails actively involving young people in processes, institutions, and decisions that shape their lives. It is about ensuring that the youth not only have a seat at the table but also play a substantial role in discussions, resolutions, and actions that lead to tangible benefits for both them and society at large.”

SYND’s commitment to nurturing climate-conscious youth promises a brighter future in the fight against climate change at the local level.
