Climate change is happening. Impacts are projected to become increasingly severe. Youth can be important agents of change in raising awareness and taking action.
‘Y-Adapt’ or ‘Youth Adapt’ is an interactive, games-based curriculum. It educates, engages and inspires youth to act in their communities to adapt to climate change.These actions are local interventions that reduce the impacts of severe weather-related events. The events can be rapid onset events -such as heavy rain leading to flooding- or slow onset events - such as extreme heat leading to drought. The curriculum is broken into seven sessions each with a different goal.
How does Y-Adapt create real world change?
Y-Adapt is the product of a collaboration between the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre, the Philippine Red Cross, PLAN International and the Engagement Lab at Emerson College.
We also extend our gratitude to the following partners, which have played a key role in the testing and finalisation of the materials: PLAN Philippines, Haiti Red Cross, Guatemala Red Cross and Iranian Red Crescent.
