Today, we begin the Environment Village youth environmental rights activism training and mentorship project with 21 youths from Bulawayo.
The project which will run for the next 3 months will provide training on environmental rights activism, practical mentorship on designing environmental campaigns and building local social movements; as well as practical environmental movement building and action.
MIHR envisages this project to launch the beginning of a vibrant environmental rights movement in Matabeleland and contribute to the Human Rights Day theme: Rebuild Better – Stand Up for Human Rights. MIHR is thus implementing this project under the theme: Rebuild Better Bulawayo – #StandUp4Environment
The actions and campaigns of the youths will be shared on this platform and other MIHR social media platforms.
