  • Informing the youth on best practices of renewable energy and nature based initiatives towards tapping green finance opportunities.
  • To showcase various approaches in creative arts, as a means of climate sensitization.
  • To raise the voice of the youth on various innovative ways of developing adaptation and resilience initiatives.
