Become A Climate Change Youth Ambassador!

Are you between the ages of 19 and 25? Do you live in Irbid, Zarqa, or Balqa? Take part in our competition and become one of our 30 climate change youth ambassadors! Simply send us a video or photo story detailing your innovative solution to an environmental problem caused by climate change in your area.

As a youth ambassador, you will participate in a fully-funded capacity building programme in Amman, focusing on climate change science, adaptation, and advocacy. Together with community-based organisations, you will take part in creating a climate change adaptation plan for your governorate, which will be shared with decision-makers in 2019. All youth ambassadors will also receive a prize, which will be generously provided by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

The competition is part of the project “Enabling Communities for Climate Change Adaptation Planning: Understanding Gender Roles”, funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Jordan. This project aims to empower local communities to design their own climate change adaptation plans, taking into account the effects of climate change on gender roles in Jordan. 

What Should You Do?

Send us your original solution to a water, energy, or food issue caused by climate change in your area. You can either send us a short video or a photo story. Short on time but interested in suggesting your idea? Then fill out the questionnaire as an alternative way of participating. Submitting a video or photo story will increase your chances of being selected as a climate change youth ambassador, however.

  • Video

Discuss your idea in a short documentary through interviews with relevant local stakeholders OR in a theatrical sketch, and send us a 2- to 5-minute video taken with your phone/camera.

  • Photo story

Send us a photo story that contains at least 10 photos with a caption.

  • Questionnaire

Fill out the online questionnaire and explain your idea by responding to all questions.

Send your idea to app.cc@wana.jo before midnight on 25 March 2018. The names of the selected youth ambassadors will be announced at a press conference late March. Check out the flyer below for more information (click here to download).
