In July, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, MSP recognised the valuable work of the Malawi Climate Youth Leaders Project, publicly announcing funding of £190,000 "in recognition of the inter-generational impacts of climate change" at the Austrian World Summit.

This week our sister organisation, The Malawi Scotland Partnership and the 2050 Climate Group welcome the 3rd Cohort of Young Climate Leaders for the year 2021-2022, launching a two day training course covering areas such as climate change, leadership, waste management, advocacy and resource mobilization.

Speaking at the opening of the training, Stella Masangano, CEO of The Malawi Scotland Partnership called on new young climate change leaders to come up with initiatives that can practically solve the problems inflicted by climate change in their communities.
