About Youth Voices

With Egypt hosting COP27 in November 2022, Empower Hub and the British Council Egypt had a key role to play in delivering the British Council’s ‘Climate Connection’ programme. Through our arts and culture, education and the English language programmes, the Climate Egypt offer is composed of a programme that aims at supporting young people to gain the skills, confidence, and connections they are looking for to realize their potential and to participate in the climate debate, understand the issues at the heart of the climate crisis and act on possible solutions within their communities.

Programme phases

The cascade training phase

We divide 80 debaters into three debate clubs, and each club receives a 3-day training in a total of 24 hours provided by the British Council facilitators and one-day online training for 4 hours. We provide them with extra soft skills like storytelling skills, advocacy skills and advanced language skills. All of our activities are based on the edutainment and deep learning strategies as we gamify all of our activities to guarantee the highest professional learning experience.
