Forecast climate change impacts and current global crises on Africa presents more complex challenges towards how best food security, health promotion, poverty alleviation and economic development can all be achieved sustainably without rising associated conflicts. The youth in Africa constitute the vast majority and are the most vulnerable to environmental risks for example access to clean and safe drinking water, flooding and droughts. It is evident that young people will have to live longer of the consequences of current environmental decisions. It is therefore important to build the capacity of the present young generation on critical environmental issues to ensure sustainability and adapt to changes in environmental and climate condition.
In this respect, the Ecoyouth Africa Initiative initiated by four partners: Green WaterHut (www.greenwaterhut.org), Nature Today, Green Spears and Integrity Internet Marketing Ltd, to offer a unique opportunity to empower the youth to take up the responsibility of ensuring sustainable environmental development in their communities through youth-led projects. Through this platform, informed youth in climate change discussions empower other youth to be ambassadors for addressing issues on water scarcity, deforestation, climate change etc in their respective homes and counties; and subsequent implement innovative projects on their own towards the prevention of such challenges. The first phase of this initiative is the Ecoyouth Africa 2011 Conference (www.ecoyouthafrica.org ) to be held in Kumasi, Ghana. This conference will serve as a model case for Ghana by bringing 40 young people across the country to share and learn better ways of addressing issues on (1) Conflict and violence in natural resources use and management, (2) Climate change, water resources, (3) food and social security, (4) Environment and health, and (5) Employment opportunities for youth. The successful outcomes of this conference would be up-scaled in subsequent years to reach more youth throughout Africa. We are currently looking for more partners and supporters for this initiative and conference in 2011. Feel free to contact us kabo-bah[at]greenwaterhut.org or info[at]ecoyouthafrica.org .
