In collaboration with BNP, the Office for Climate Education (OCE) provided climate change resources and training to one of India's largest volunteer organisations, Bhumi, in order to support their Eco-champs Climate. Eco-Champs is an environment sensitisation program to empower students to become proactive practitioners of eco-friendly lifestyle through an immersive and hands-on experience spanned across 5 months.
The OCE accompanied Bhumi, in their adaptation work to the local context of our pedagogical teacher's guide on Ocean & Cryosphere during 2020.
At a later stage, on the 26 and 27 February 2021, the OCE provided a virtual 2 day scientific and pedagogical climate change training to Bhumi volunteers (who are children instructors). More than 40 participants attended this online training.
Bhumi's Eco-Champ was carried out with success, information about their local impact and involvement of youth can be found in their final closing event replay.
