Thank you message to Climate Minded supporters

Hi Climate Minded supporter,

A big thank you to you from the bottom of our hearts! 

In the beginning of April, I launched my social venture Climate Minded through a crowdfunding campaign. Thanks to your help and support, we raised £2715!

A reminder of what you have supported: https://youtu.be/UuHu7uLGGG8

We can now set the wheels in motion and work to improve the opportunities available to young people in two separate continents. 

Since the crowdfunding campaign ended, we have been working very hard to make our plans a reality and start delivering what we promised. 

We have a new member in the team, Kathy! She is a Year Here Fellow, climate literate and committed to tackling education inequality. She will be facilitating the training for students in the UK! 

Currently we are approaching schools in both countries. Once the programme has been  delivered we will share the personalised thank you videos to those who supported the campaign with over £30. 

There are exciting times ahead of us and I am so glad you are part of this journey.

We work to widen access for young people from ethnic minorities and low income backgrounds  to participate in the Green Economy by teaching them about climate literacy, green skills and green jobs.

This programme has been running in 2 separate countries. We have run pilots in the UK and have translated materias in Spanish to run it in Bolivia.

We would like to raise funds to build a team of facilitators to run workshops in both countries. We also want to launch this programme in other English and Spanish speaking countries as well.

With your support, only with £30 you can provide education for 2 students one in Uk and one in Bolivia. With £90 you can provide education for 6 students 3 in Uk and 3 in Bolivia. And with £400 you can enable an entire class of 15 students in both countries to be upskilled and taken through this programme.

Rewards:

£30 = climate minded education for 2 students, one in Bolivia and one in UK.

Reward: personalised thank you video from the students.


£90 = climate minded education for 6 students, 3 in Bolivia and 3 in UK.

Reward: personalised thank you video from the students.

 

£400 = climate minded education for a class of 15 students in both countries, UK and Bolivia.

Reward: personalised thank you video from the 2 classes.

Your money will help Climate Minded grow, not only reach more students in two different continents but train trainers that will also spread the impact.

Please help us make young people thrive and be part of a greener and brighter future!

About me:

 1648675081_roxana_romero_photo.jpeg

I used to run a centre that raises awareness on climate change in Edinburgh for 3 years. I am climate literate and I used to work on economic development for many years. This is a project built with passion, commitment and care. It’s very close to my heart. 

About Climate Minded 4 phases: 

1648674972_cm_phases.jpg

The climate literacy phase  is a course certified by the carbon literacy project that covers all you need to know about climate change and its impacts. By the end of this course students come away with a certificate. 

The green skills phase provides a variety of hands-on workshops on sustainable practices such as food growing, sustainable cooking, bikeability and upcycling. ..

The third phase is the green jobs phase where we deliver inspiring talks to open up student minds into considering this sector as a potential future career. This phase is also linked to career advice, work experience and apprenticeship opportunities. 

In future, we would like to translate the climate literacy certification into UCAS Tariff points.
