NYNCC for faith communities’ youth inclusiveness on green entrepreneurship

Participants to Interfaith Youth forum on climate change

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The country’s National Youth Network on Climate Change (NYNCC) has emphasized the need for faith communities’ youths to be part in green entrepreneurship.

This call comes barely weeks after NYNCC launched its first ever Strategic Plan for 2021 to 2025 which has a gap for religious groups’ youth involvement.

NYNCC National Coordinator Dominic Nyasulu told the Interfaith Youth forum on climate change on Friday, May 7, 2021 in the capital Lilongwe that his organisation is championing green entrepreneurship including wastes management projects for job creation among youths.

Nyasalu says green bankable projects have been lined-up for youths hence inclusiveness approach.

“Soon after the strategic plan was launched we noticed that there was a gap in faith communities youth participation hence the forum for their incorporation.

“We are now into green entrepreneurship amid thin plastic ban that youths can have bankable projects for job creation hence the need for all youths involvement including faith communities’ young people,” says Nyasulu.

Muslim youth group leader from Area 24, in Lilongwe, Lukiya Gaveni lauded NYNCC for accommodating faith communities’ young people in its program implementation with an assurance of full participation.

Gaveni was therefore eager into paper recycling products for income generation coupled with tree planting.

Echoing on the same, Baha’l Faith youth leader Ann Stephen Banda said their participation in green entrepreneurship program will be a milestone in climate change effects’ adaption.

With funding from Southern African Faith Communities’ Environment Institute (Safcei) the interfaith youth forum on climate change attracted 40 youth leaders from mother bodies including Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM), Evangelical Association of Malawi (EAM), Muslim Association of Malawi, the Baha’i Faith and among other.

The forum aimed at learning and sharing experience about what and how the faith community is engaged in climate change and environmental justice and governance

It also tried to identify evidence and issue specific opportunities, gaps that exist with the faith community and also strategies on how to mobilize, enhance coordination and also increase active participation of youth from the faith community in climate change and environmental related initiatives
