Youth Institute

The Climate Change, Youth, and Jobs Institute is a part of the W3 research project, that is specifically designed for high school students to engage them in the issues surrounding climate change and work, and to invite them to participate in creating solutions. Students will learn about how climate change affects the world of work, while developing critical thinking skills and they will have the opportunity to dialogue directly with a variety of stakeholders.
