Description of the project: ECAP is a female-youth-led project that offers a holistic climate education and advocacy programme based on computerized simulations. Using an MIT Sloan computer model, the ECAP team facilitates interactive simulation workshops, and guides participants on how to tackle climate change from a scientific and systemic perspective testing the effectiveness of solutions via a computer model. They encourage young people to advocate for ambitious climate action by sharing science news and stories of inspiring changemakers. Finally, ECAP works with schools and State representatives to advance local environmental policies and national legislation on cross-cutting issues related to climate.
