Youth Save the Planet
The world climate crisis has prompted a massive youth movement for Climate Action, unfortunately, not so much awareness has been created for the younger generation. For Climate Advocacy to be considered sustainable, the younger generation (under 18) are expected to be educated, aware, and taking action on climate change. ShareYourself wants to inspire young people in primary and secondary schools towards Climate Action by funding their ideas, innovations and actions geared towards Climate Action through a $500 grant for 6 winning applicants. The project creator can either be an individual student, student groups, or even an entire classroom. This grant will require that each young applicant under the age of 18 must have an adult as his/her team guide, to help with the project management, without any further influence on the project. The adult is only a helper and should not have too much of an influence on your project, we expect the youth to lead and manage the project.
