Our online educational workshops are split into two categories: our Back2Basics Workshops and Dialogues. The Back2Basics exist to bridge gaps in climate change literacy and prepare youth in the African Climate Alliance activist network, and beyond, to feel comfortable in broader dialogues on climate change. Building on the month’s topic of the Back2Basics workshop, our dialogues are in-depth sessions that aim to marry climate change realities with expertise and understandings from those on the front lines. Every session features guest speakers who can bring together a combination of science and lived experience. Some examples of our workshops can be seen below:
We regularly host in-person workshops led by us, or in collaboration with our partners.
Many of our workshops utilise the open space methodology alongside creative facilitation.
