You will learn how to record and showcase voices of youth and create powerful communications campaigns to continue your advocacy work even during times like COVID-19 when you cannot collaborate in-person.
The final product - “YEA EcoRadio” featuring your voices and messages - will be compiled by the Earth Institute team and be featured on the UNEP MGCY website.
