About the programme

Under our Youth Skills Leadership for Positive Pathways (YSLPP) program, the British Council is implementing Youth for Climate Action (YCA) project in partnership with Association of Youth Organizations in Nepal (AYON). The project places a distinct emphasis on empowering young people to take an active role in positive climate action. Through this project, young individuals will have the chance to get involved in local-level climate initiatives. They will have the opportunity to enhance their knowledge, acquire valuable skills, and expand their networks, all of which will equip them to lead efforts aimed at fostering gender equality in their respective sectors and communities. The project’s approach to leadership development for climate action involves capacity building training to aspiring young leaders and providing them opportunities to network and action against climate issues in their communities through small scale social action projects.
