Community Impact Projects
A core component of the Youth Climate Ambassadors (YCA) program is for youth to translate their new knowledge and skills into local climate action through community impact projects (CIP). The YCA community impact projects are youth-created and youth-led and provide sustainable solutions to local problems that contribute to climate change. Projects address topics in biodiversity, energy, transportation, food, water, and waste, and seek to build awareness, drive positive environmental change, and inspire others to act on climate change.
