Youth as Agents of Change

Youth can be powerful change agents within their households and communities. Raising their awareness and understanding about the benefits and availability of clean cooking solutions can empower them to promote and encourage the use of clean and efficient stoves and fuels in their own households, as well as influence their long-term cooking practices. Join this session to learn about how outreach and education through schools and extracurricular activities is being used to inspire youth and influence widespread adoption of clean cooking solutions.
