Youth Climate Exchange

My Climate, My Life, My Responsibility

Around 95 youth and activists came together for a Kenyan-German exchange. For 1.5 hours, they discussed the already noticeable effects of climate change, our possibilities for action and the differences in the approach to climate change in the policies of both countries.

We were pleased to welcome the following speakers: Wycliff Nyamao, Fridays For Future, Aquila Lwanga, BUNDJugend, Madame Mathoni Kariuki, Greenpeace and the NAJU.

In order to stay in contact beyond the Exchange, we created a Whatsapp group. Click here to join!

There is no better way to fight against climate change than to share knowledge and learn from each other.

Therefore we had a Kenyan-German dialogue on climate! The Online-Workshop united East-African and German youth activists in order to discuss human caused climate change. How does our behaviour effect climate change? And what are the most effective actions, each and everyone of us can take?

The idea of the Youth Forum is to offer a space, in which youth from Kenya and Germany can exchange their experiences and the differences in climate activism.


The workshop was scheduled for 90 minutes and was divided into two equal thematic blocks.

  1. In the first half, a selection of both Kenyan and German environmental movements and youth organisations presented themselves. This gave both sides a good first insight into the respective type of activism.
  2. In the second half, we divided the participants into wildly mixed breakout sessions, where questions could be asked and discussions were opened. Here, the participants had complete freedom in the choice of topics.
