We are pleased to have partnered with SYAH (SIMS Youth AIMS Hub) in creating and delivering a challenging, fun and experiential project-generation workshop. The session served to launch the COP 23 Climate Action Challenge to climate-passionate Mauritian youth aged 16-25.
DodoWorkPlay delivered a toolbox of resources and activities for the participants to create a solution with the theme of Climate Action in different parts of society. Using tools such as a research manual, project canvas and an idea generation tree, participants were able to create S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Attainable/Achievable, Relevant and Time bound) approaches to promote efforts to tackle climate change.
Of the five groups of participants, the first prize (cash plus seed funding for project implementation) went to the group challenged with the theme of "climate change in the workplace”. Prizes also included trips to conservation areas, tree planting opportunities, and mentoring to support project implementation with DodoWorkPlay.
Every participant worked hard to create implementable and exciting projects, and we look forward to seeing their implementation in the near future. Congratulations to all of the participants! We look forward to working further with SYAH on future events.
