Strengthening the environment-clubs capacities in schools

This awareness campaign project was set up by the Togo-based association "Plan Sud", which aims to inspire and educate young students on the importance of environmental and climate related issues, in particular thanks to caravanes and environment clubs that have been running since 2010.

An initiative of PLAN SUD

Overview of the project

Since 2010, the organisation set up caravans and environment-clubs with the aim to raise pupils’ awareness from schools in Togo on environment and climate-related issues.

The people in charge on the environment clubs go to trainings and train other on:

  • climate change issues
  • strategies and behaviors to adopt to mitigate the impacts of climate change.

In 2017, « PLAN SUD-KPALIME » signed a partnership to strengthen the environment clubs’ capacities in various domains – such as environment protection – with the help of the France-based NGO « PLANETE URGENCE ».

More specifically, the aim is to organise “paid leave” during which the environment clubs got through trainings and therefore strengthen their capacities in the domain of environmental protection. In this context, two missions have been led and organised for reinforcing the ambassador’s capacities in terms of environmental education.

In August 2017, a mission was organised with the aim to strengthen the environment-club ambassador’s capacities in Lycée de Tové. This mission was put into effect by two French volunteers Franck Salgues et Laetitia Leonard.
