    Climate Change Messenger strives to give a voice to citizen journalists in rural areas to create to awareness on the dangers of climate change, global warming as well as build the capacity of youth leaders as agents for the Green
    Phenomenon. Through blogging communities leaders, youths will also be capable to express their concerns, knowledge and ideas on indigenous practical measures that could mitigate climate change and especially the rampant use of polythene bags as Cameroon Government has slammed ban on non-biodegradable plastics of less than 60 mircons.
    Advocacy networking is an important component of the project and by bringing
    together the youths for a common fight; it will successfully change mindsets
    on important issues like global warming, water pollution and water scarcity especially in an area like Donga Mantung Division that has been hit by water scarcity.
    Climate Change Messenger is both an educational tool and an instrument for
    voicing concerns on Climate change and the use polythene bags.
    The phenomenon of climate change is quite pressing one and can only succeed if the community voices are heard and involved actively. It is not only
    a necessity but a practical way to instill hope for the future and reinforces
    government efforts in mitigating global warming and climate change. Climate
    Messenger will instill a strong response to climate change issues in the nearest
