EcoSciGen Climate Research Workshop

As the first climate literacy school in Nigeria, EcoSciGen takes great delight in providing fundamental research skills and in-depth understanding about climate issues to young people, especially those from marginalized communities. The organization works to encourage grassroots climate innovation and action.

Climate Research Workshop – Details

The goal of this six-month program is to provide young people with the information and abilities necessary to work as independent climate researchers through training sessions, intellectual development, capacity building, and knowledge exchange.

The initiative will transform young people’s views in Africa about climate change. Instead than being seen as merely a problem, it offers a chance for people to have a significant influence and help improve the state of the climate.
