YECAP Fellowship Cohort #3
What is YECAP Fellowship? A six-month comprehensive regional youth-led Fellowship Programme offered by the convening partners of the Youth Empowerment in Climate Action Platform (YECAP), to train young leaders across Asia and the Pacific in meaningful youth engagement in climate action.
What to expect? Together, we will scale up the local climate initiatives to implement climate action knowledge and to be engaged in the relevant official YECAP and affiliated events throughout the Fellowship Journey.
Why join us? The selected Fellows will lead, represent and contribute to the YECAP Community by raising awareness among Asia-Pacific youth and engaging with them in various activities on the safe and inclusive platform. From brown bag sessions to consultations, dialogues and more on national, regional and global levels, this is an opportunity to address climate issues and solutions by youth and for youth, to elevate youth voices in advocating for climate action priorities and systematic change, and to be part of larger youth movements.
What's next? After completing the Fellowship, the Fellows will receive an official YECAP certificate and acknowledgement of their active participation and initiation throughout the programme. They will also stay in the supportive network of youth in climate action alumni.
