As the world grapples with the consequences of global warming and climate change, every effort towards facilitating environmental protection is becoming worldwide. More so, whereas global and national macro-interventions were largely vital, there is need to support and promote environmental protection. It is important that household’s institutions, schools, and even businesses be empowered to play their part in protecting the environment by being good stewards and actively preserving our ecosystem right from their backyards.
In particular, the youth resource has remained untapped in the drive to promote environmental protection in Cameroon. This project “Green Empowerment” is intended to launch a drive that will empower young people in the North West Region to learn more and appreciate the environment, to learn how to utilise it while protecting it and to contribute in expanding the green cover (tree planting) of our continent. Individuals, youths, schools and households will be educated and supported in creating green zone or simply planting trees and creating flower gardens.
The major approach of this project is Education, Information and Communication on the one hand and active participation on the other hand.
