Schools in South Africa have been designating students as “eco-warriors” as part of an initiative supported by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) to drive environmental and climate change awareness amongst the young and old in their communities.
The youthful warriors have supported rubbish clean-up campaigns around their schools, eliminating over 1000 illegal dumping sites.

Other students have established agricultural cooperatives and learnt how to farm sustainably in the face of the effects of climate change and the degradation of the environment.
The Projects in South Africa are supported by UNDP’s Small Grants Programme.
