PAS Kolkata will help develop committed young environment champions through Ecology Action groups (Eco Action Clubs) focused on activities in high schools in Kolkata and Patna. The grantee will select institutions that currently do not have Eco Action Clubs or related organized extra curriculum groups at their schools. The grantee will also design the curriculum and the program with input from the U.S. Consulate. The Eco Action Clubs will be managed by a local partner supporting student and faculty input in development of ecological activities. The opportunity will support targeted activities of the Eco Action Clubs to amplify efforts to combat climate change. The programs will serve to promote environmental diplomacy by building subject matter expertise in STEM areas for youth as well as youth leadership skills.
