Young Innovators Programme

Focused on empowering our youth with green and enterprising skills to eventually lead carbon neutral lifestyles.

Young Innovators (YI) took off in Malta for the first time in 2021. It begins with a train-the-trainers approach to introduce systems thinking and critical problem-solving in secondary education and colleges. The programme culminates in a Young Climathon where students present their solutions to local climate challenges. Teachers are introduced to a variety of tried and tested resources and materials to then apply in their classrooms, bringing climate education into varying subjects from English to mathematics. 

Designed for students between the ages of 12 and 18, YI puts youth empowerment at its core. Not only are teachers learning how to engage more creatively with their students, but students themselves are given a pathway to become changemakers. By participating in the Young Climathon, winning solutions will have an opportunity to be put into fruition with support and mentoring from key stakeholders.
