I would like to start an Earth Charter Youth Group (ECYG) in Rwanda, first consisting of the students of secondary schools and university. Once an ECYG is established, we can hold regular gatherings in which members can discuss and plan sustainable projects within the immediate setting (schools and universities) and also for the community at large. Examples of projects are like workshops/seminars on the Earth Charter, sustainability, and youth leadership to create more awareness and expand group membership.
