The British Council in Turkey initiated the “UK Alumni Climate Change Grant” to select projects that will raise young people’s awareness on climate change and environmental issues in Turkey. Within the grant program,
- we organized online seminars reaching thousands of students across all regions of Turkey,
- launched a social media campaign to help people take action on climate change,
- gathered leading national and international innovators and researchers on climate technology, policy and finance,
- and analyzed climate change from national & international sources and three different perspectives (scientific, policy and financial) and prepared a report.
At the end of the program, it is aimed to publish a qualified climate change report and unveil the concrete reasons & conclusions of climate change. The project concluded with an online event on April 22, World Earth Day, which brings together national and international climate change experts and entrepreneurs.
