  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • Spots available: 10+

Help raise awareness among Nepali youth on important issues as Environmental care, Climate, Recycling and Sustainability.

As a volunteer you will give workshops at schools, set up youth clubs, talk with local supporters and set up awareness campaigns and cleanup events in the area. Do you want to make the planet a better place? Then this will be an incredible experience for you.

The Environment in Nepal

Urbanisation, development and tourism increases the production of waste in Nepal. Unfortunately, Nepal does not yet have all the systems in place to cope with this increase. Waste is either burnt, leading to bad air quality, or dumped haphazardly. This is having a serious effect on the health of Nepali people, on its land and water resources. There has been little education among the Nepali people about the influences of climate change, waste, littering and the effects of burning of plastic. Therefore, in many neighborhoods, you see people littering and garbage on the streets. However, nowadays, you see among the youth that there is a will to change things, but they don’t know where to start.

What does a Climate Change Ambassador do?

Volunteer Society Nepal is looking for people who want to share their knowledge about climate change with our projects in Nepal. Volunteer Society Nepal has started a project to educate and work together with youth clubs and schools in one area in Kathmandu, Nepal. The goal is to create awareness among youth and teach them about of the influence of climate change, littering, plastics, etc. And of course to make them ACT upon this!

As a volunteer you will:

  • Work with the local community and schools to plan, coordinate and manage the Litter-Free Neighborhood Program.
  • Assist the schools and community with the waste collection drives and trashtag challenges
  • Assist in developing and carrying out various waste management training and programs for the community
  • Build networks and strengthen relations with community members
  • Work with the local schools, develop and give workshops on climate change
  • Make pictures and promote small events on Facebook and Instagram.

Do I need any specific skills or qualifications for this placement?

You just need to bring your skills and knowledge of the environment that you learned since you were a kid. You need to be a pro-active person with lots of good ideas to get a community and/or group of youth interested in a common goal. Of course Volunteer Society Nepal will help you with this.

And last but not least: you will need to be culturally sensitive with strong interpersonal and communication skills and the confidence to create positive relationships in very diverse working environments.
