The crash course was developed for Arab youth to raise their awareness on climate change challenges and its impacts to better comprehend the gravity of the climate crisis. The program also addresses actionable solutions we can pursue to overcome this crisis.
The program kicks-off by defining climate change and global warning and identifying their significance and causes. Following that, trainees will gain a better understating on our role in combating climate change with a focus on greenhouse gases. Next, the course will dive into greater detail about the environmental, social, and economic impacts of climate change in relation to the Arab world. The trainees will then explore several approaches to combat climate change, such as calculating your carbon footprint, plastic waste management, and understanding what a circular economy entails, while applying simple methodologies such as the 4R framework (Reject-Reduce-Reuse-Recycle). Finally, the course will conclude with an overview on international efforts that seek to limit the impacts of climate change and how we can contribute as individuals to actively combat the climate crisis.
