Training for Youths on GLOBE Climate Learning

Humans have an inseparable tie with nature- and science, of course. And while the world is facing all sorts of environmental challenges, there are no restrictive lines that provide 'making-a-difference' licenses only to those studying environment related subjects. Especially in today's generation where each conscious person is getting inclined towards environment protection activities, learning opportunities should and are being offered for all.

On January 27, 2016 ECCA conducted
Training For Youths on GLOBE Climate Learning. The training, which was based on GLOBE (Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment) protocol, held a prime objective of enabling young participants to estimate various physical, biological and chemical parameters of a locality so as to upgrade their interest in #scienceasculture.

"I am not from science background but I am very keen  to learn more on this global issue of climate change ", said Palistha, a 20 year old college student while participating in the training
.

The program started by sharing of theoritical knowledge, then moved on to practical activites. While facilitator Mr. Dipesh Gurung made the sessions livelier by each second, the participants got more familiar with aspects related to water, atmosphere and biodiversity. On site practical activities on PH, transparency, electrical conductivity and temperature measurement of water was carried out on the banks of Bagmati river. Another phase included cloud cover readings and atmospheric temperature measurement (maximum and minimum) with the help of maxima minima thermometer and cloud charts. Along with this, participants got a chance to practically know about landcover investigation and tree canopy including DBH (Diameter at Breast Height).

The participants at the end of the day were enthusiastic to learn even more. "I found this training highly useful even for my academics", said Aruna, an undergraduate student of Environmental Science. "This kind of programs along with amplifying one's knowledge in scientific aspects also helps to get an idea of his locality's environmental facts and the kind of impacts made by various agents."

ECCA Nepal prioritizes youth involvement in the developmental activity. The trainees will pass on their learning to young students of different schools.
