During September, twenty World Faith Lilongwe, Malawi youth leaders were trained in climate justice. They started a petition-signing drive following the COP21 guidelines that called for a global temperature decrease, more awareness of climate justice causes, and for government financing for climate-related relief. The youth leaders helped spread the word to the wider community about climate change issues and the role that government and international organizations play.
In October, World Faith Malawi hosted a debate and training workshop on survey questions, and how to use them to collect good data. Winners of the Youth Action Plan competition, a local Baha’i youth group, as well as youth leaders from different religious groups and secondary schools gathered to learn how to craft effective survey questions and why they are important for collecting data on key social issues.
