Resume:

The overall objective of this project is that young people in slums in Kampala take action towards making their local communities more resilient towards the effects of climate change. In a partnership between Dreamtown and the Ugandan organisation Network for Active Citizens, youth from three slum communities in the so-called K-zone of Kampala will be mobilised as active citizens around inspiring initiatives addressing the negative effects of climate change. These include the development of Public City Gardens, a Youth Climate Resource Centre, trainings for young people in urban agriculture and Communication for Development, climate campaign activities, and community cinema. These activities will increase awareness and understanding among youth of climate change and its effects in urban slums; increase access to green and climate resilient public spaces; and increase the ability of young people to communicate and advocate about the impacts of climate change in their communities.
