Background:

The Liberian Youth For Climate Actions-LYCA has been passionate about spreading awareness and creating platforms for the general public, helping in amplifying the climate messages and taking sustainable actions in solving the climate crisis. LYCA will provide tools and training for motivated Liberian citizens who might be interested in becoming climate activists in their communities. Knowledge about the climate crisis, its impacts, and threats to present and future generations is hugely important to be taught. Liberia is equally vulnerable to the climate crisis as other countries across the globe. We need more proactive activists to stand up for the planet and become solution providers as well as policymakers.

Methodology:
Climate Activist Training includes four days( 3 hours each) of direct training divided into three interactive sessions that cover such topics as effective communication, Introduction to Climate Science, the history and successes of Climate Activism Globally, Personal branding, Power of the Social Media, National and international roles of countries under the Paris agreement, Liberia Nationally Determine Contribution (NDC), Role of a Climate Activist, and the details of climate solutions such as Clean Energy, Climate Restorative Technologies, Climate Education, Tree planting, etc.
Every week an email will be sent with additional resources for reading and researching. This will keep trainees focus on the program. In the conclusion of the program who be activists will complete a mini project in their community before being certified as a Climate Activist.
