About the Program

What is it about

The Climate Research Workshop offers a unique training experience for individuals aged 18-26 from Africa who are passionate about addressing climate change issues. This 6-month program is designed to equip young participants with the knowledge and skills needed to become independent researchers in the climate space through intellectual development, capacity building, knowledge sharing and training sessions.

The program will reshape the perspectives of young individuals in Africa regarding climate change. Rather than being viewed solely as a problem, it presents an opportunity for participants to make a meaningful impact and contribute to positive change in the climate landscape.

What We Offer

The EcoSciGen Climate Research Workshop begins with scientific research training: a beginner-friendly tri-monthly training designed to equip them as expert writers and science communicators.  Following the research training, there will be a climate change training in which participants will gain a thorough understanding of climate change and its intersections. These training sessions will last 4-months, after which participants will collaborate to carry out research related to climate change to be published in peer-reviewed journals for another 2-months.

Scientific Research Training

3 months

Participants will be trained on research design, literature review, data collection and analysis, effective writing, communication, and project management. Young scholars will be provided with the tools and resources to carry out independent research. Through this training a new generation of researchers will emerge- people who will move from words to action.

Climate Change Knowledge Training

1 Month

Participants will be trained on concepts like the history of earth processes, earth history and processes, physical science of climate change, and climate solutions. Through the virtual training program, which includes diverse speakers, workshops and group work, participants will come together to find solutions and further our scientific understanding of climate change.

Collaboration and Mentorship

2 Months

To improve their skills and put their knowledge into practice. Participants will collaborate with their respective backgrounds to write a research paper aimed at addressing climate-related issues. Participants will be mentored and supervised by academics who will oversee their work during this time.

    I’m greatful for such opportunity especially for us students with interest in the environmental science 🔭🧪 department


    Good morning ,I haven’t understood how the sessions will be conducted in terms of locations like will it be online or ,thank you

  7. I’m 30 and a graduate of Architecture.
    Why the age limit of 26?
    A laudable initiative this is, but why the age limit of 26? Would a 27 year old be much older or more qualified to learn?

    These are my concerns.


    This is a great opportunity for us the young generation to also work towards cubing atmospheric or climatic harbors.

  9. Greetings. This is a great opportunity to the young generation who want to thrive in the space of climate change. May be just to ask, is there a stipend and a certificate of completion for the program? Thank you
