At Justice Movement Uganda (JMU), climate education is at the heart of our mission. We are dedicated to developing comprehensive curricula that cover a broad spectrum of climate change-related topics. Our commitment to education extends from primary schools to higher education institutions, ensuring that students at all levels receive a well-rounded understanding of climate change. We believe that building a solid foundation of knowledge is key to addressing the challenges of climate change effectively.
In addition to formal education, we actively engage with communities through workshops, seminars, and awareness campaigns. These initiatives are designed to bring climate education directly to the people, making it accessible in schools, community centers, and public spaces. Our approach is inclusive, ensuring that climate education reaches a wide range of individuals, regardless of their background or location.
To make climate education engaging and memorable, we employ interactive learning methods. These include hands-on activities, group discussions, and multimedia presentations. By making the learning process interactive, we encourage critical thinking and active participation, fostering a deeper understanding of climate issues among our students and participants.
Empowering youth is a central aspect of our climate education efforts. We establish and support youth-led climate clubs in schools and universities, providing a platform for young leaders to take ownership of climate education and advocacy. We believe that young individuals have a powerful role to play in driving change, and by nurturing their passion for climate action, we ensure a brighter, more sustainable future.
