Overview of the project
Green Beach project was an educational and fun school outing.
It enabled over 80 young people (students, workers and young professionals) to improve their knowledge on climate change. These young people then had discussions with over 150 residents from Assinie-Mafia in order to understand the way they perceive climate change.
Assinie-Mafia is a commune located around 80KM away from Abidjan (economic capital of Ivory Coast) on the coast. The beach at Assinie-Mafia is the most renowned beach in the country. Many buildings and touristic infrastructures are threatened by the waves and coastal erosion? Fishing activities of populations are less productive than in the past and population have no idea how to adapt to climate change.

88 young people improved their knowledge on climate change – Raising public awareness on climate change to around 150 people
