Climate change can effect the visually challenged in unique ways.

Through close collaboration with EarthGen staff and partners, three passionate high school students have delved deep into the subject of climate justice and the state of climate change education.

This new program offered a paid opportunity for high school students passionate about climate justice and wanting to expand their knowledge on this critical issue. After a thoughtful selection process and armed with their unique strengths and skills, EarthGen’s three teen Youth Fellows embarked on a mission to learn more about what students think and feel about climate change education.

They conducted research and explored innovative approaches to tackle this pressing issue. Youth Fellow Deja Jangana reflects on her experience, saying, “This taught me the power of using our own superpowers to create change.” This program has supported these young leaders and highlighted the potential of leveraging individual strengths to drive meaningful change.

Their efforts and research culminated with a collection of thought-provoking videos and a podcast, which serve as platforms to showcase their commitment and passion for climate justice. These creative outputs capture the essence of their unique superpowers and amplify their voices, allowing each fellow to reach a broad audience and inspire action.

EarthGen’s Youth Fellowship program is not just a means of investing in the growth and development of these young individuals but also a powerful form of climate action. It supports EarthGen’s ongoing efforts to foster student leadership and pave the way for a more sustainable future where youth voices take center stage in the climate justice movement.
