winning the climate war...
here is how communities can combat
Who We Are
The Climate Education Initiative (CEI) Project® is a youth-led initiative
creating change since 2020 by leveraging innovative climate education, policy, and advocacy methods to solve
the climate crisis at the grassroot. Listen to our story here.
What We Do
A core focus of The CEI Project is to mobilise, engage and help local communities learn about how climate change affects them, and what they can do to protect themselves from the hazards of climate change.
Our workshops are conducted in local languages in a bid to build the capacity of community members while facilitating climate-resilient development as well as tackling adaptation problems at the local level.
Policy and Advocacy
We inform policy through evidence-based research & documentation and leverage advocacy strategies to amplify campaigns. We do this by engaging meaningfully in conferences such as Youth4Climate and the UN Conference of Parties (COP).
“By polluting the oceans, not mitigating CO2 emissions and destroying our biodiversity, we are killing our planet. Let us face it, there is no planet B.”
Emmanuel Macron, President of France
Youth and Children are on the frontline of climate change. Climate change impacts everyone but the future belongs to young people. That's why at The CEI Project, we tap into Youth Power to accelerate climate action in local communities.
W0men and Girls
Simply to get water for drinking, cooking, and other household needs, millions of girls spend hours every day traveling to water sources, often several times a day. They are therefore exposed to the impacts of the water crisis. Women and girls are not just vulnerable to the climate crisis but they are solution drivers.
Marginalised communities are one of the most vulnerable to the climate crisis. They include those who have been historically excluded, as well as those continuing to face other barriers to civic participation. That's why we serve these communities to ensure they are not left behind.
We Focus On
A key focus of our work is educating local communities on climate change and we are rethinking how it's done. We are leveraging innovative methods to deliver climate education through human-centered design.
The climate crisis is disproportionately affecting the most vulnerable people. It has created an unfair exposure of poor and marginalized communities to harms associated with climate and environmental pollution.
Adaptation, Loss & Damage
Global south countries contribute the least to the climate crisis but yet they suffer from its impacts. That's why a key focus of our work is addressing loss and damage and helping the most vulnerable people adapt to climate change and build resiliency.
