Action Steps for a Sustainable Lifestyle - Conscious Consumerism
This toolkit, in partnership with HSBC, aims to guide youth towards a more sustainable lifestyle by developing their habits and behaviors and urging them to set an example for others to follow. The guide provides holistic suggestions that seek to benefit the community as a whole including community members, leaders, and activists in this field who can work on implementing and developing their own micro campaigns and initiatives in the Arab world.
The guide focuses on six different and interrelated categories: water consumption, food consumption, shopping, housing, travel, and waste management, which will support consumers in improving their consumption habits in their daily lives.
Action Steps for a Green Economy - Green Skills
This toolkit, in partnership with HSBC, will focus on different methods of obtaining green skills - don’t worry, going back to school is not the only avenue you can take. Furthermore, to cater to the profile of Arab youth, it will address some of the unique attributes of the Arab World in regards to green skills. The Arab nations and their populations are young, eager, proactive, and are uniquely positioned to benefit from a thriving green economy. At the same time, many Arab nations are currently saddled with one of the highest unemployment rates and the conventional economy seems unable to absorb the influx of young talent. Applying green skills at scale could be the panacea leaders are looking for to unleash the region’s creativity and economic potential.
Action Steps for Green Schools - Youth Advocacy
Are you a young person who is passionate about tackling climate change but not sure where to start? Do you want to be part of the solution, influence the future, and not stand by as our planet suffers? Are you looking for ways to share your ideas, inspire others, and kickoff initiatives that will have a measurable impact? Then this toolkit, in partnership with HSBC, is for you. Stick around to learn more about how you can become an active participant in the environmental movement by organising and leading social change within your school or university. If you are already part of a school council or are considering running (which we highly recommend!), this toolkit has some tips for you too, such as developing a pledge for a green mission for your student council.
Empowering Tomorrow's Leaders - Navigating Local and Regional COYs
The Arab Youth Centre is pleased to share an excerpt from the upcoming official COY18 and COP28 Youth Handbook, intended for release later this year in partnership with YOUNGO, HSBC, and Posterity Institute. The aim of this document is to provide you with information regarding the array of local and regional Conferences of Youth (COYs) preceding the launch of the complete guide.
The full toolkit will be released in October, so stay tuned!
