African Youth Initiaitve on Climate Change: AYICC

The Nairobi Climate Conference video archives are full of fascinating testimonies on the reality of climate change and the various projects, organisation and coalitions working to address climate change. One very interesting, and positive organisation is an African youth movement working to heighten awareness of climate change both within the African continent and internationally; after all Africa stands to be hard hit by climate change so these are voices that desperately need to be heard.
"We are asking everyone, especially world leaders to note that climate change is happening, and we are feeling it already" Sena Alouka (Togo)
African Youth Initiative on Climate Change (AYICC) represents a start of the climate action movement on the African continent.

This coalition will connect African youth organizations and youth oriented organizations working on climate change issues. The coalition will seek to optimise climate change action by African youth and will be spearheaded by youth leaders from across Africa.
"Africa is shedding tears due to climate change" Issa Hussein (Kenya)
