Our focus: Youths and Gender.
• Our communities are majorly youths.
• They are very energetic, very flexible, open minded, can adjust to all
conditions, very innovative, willing to learn, have less responsibilities,
require less facilitation compared to adults, willing to cause change in
communities and can be molded to what is desired.
• They are able to cause change among teenagers, youths and elderly
because;
o They know exactly the challenges their peers have and know exactly how to
help them out.
o They have willingness to help find solutions to communities.
08 – 10 Aug 2018 5BUSITEMA UNIVERSITY - UGANDA
Gender Equality.
• The GEURCE and ESD association recognises the important roles that
girls/ boys and women/men can play in achieving the SDGs and works
to harness the contribution of all people to sustainable development.
• Females are invaluable in achieving SDGs.
• Females have been incorporated in association leadership and
participation in implementing ESD activities. At least 50%.
• Role model in encouraging girl child education, encourage staying in
school for girls and promote science education.
• Involved in career guidance, counseling, sensitisation on sanitation
and hygiene and HIV/AIDs regarding girls.

Our Approach: Steps to achieve the best from
youths.
Identify the youths.
Qualities – capability
(persona vs task)
Objectives of the program, their role in the
implementation, your role, your expectations,
nature of the problem, where it is and how it
will be handled.
Equip them through training,
facilitation, and equipments
Chose team leaders
among them
through merit
Supervise their
supervisors using
good mechanisms.
Task them to find the
problems in community
and solve them08 – 10 Aug 2018 9BUSITEMA UNIVERSITY - UGANDA
Our Approach.

Mobilization of students to participate in ESD activities, ESD activities like
general cleaning, protecting of lawns, Greening the campus-tree planting.
• Outreach activities – major approach.
Schools; primary and secondary.
Communities; town councils and villages.
Eco tourism trips to game and forest reserves.
• ESD – a cross cutting course in FSE approved by NCHE.

All masters.
08 – 10 Aug 2018 10BUSITEMA UNIVERSITY - UGANDA
Outreach activities – Schools (primary and
secondary)
• Teaching
• Sensitisation on benefits of
education, sanitation and
hygiene, HIV/AIDS
• Promoting science education.
• Supporting Girl child education
• Career guidance
• General guidance and counseling
• Academic mentorship
• Conservation of nature and
environment
08 – 10 Aug 2018 11BUSITEMA UNIVERSITY - UGANDA
Outreach activities - Community
• Partnership with and mobilisation of other
stake holders (town council leadership, sub-
county leadership, police, community members,
students guild and University staff) in general
cleaning of the nearby town.
• Sensitization and awareness raising about;
benefits of education, Girl child education,
Sanitation and hygiene, HIV/AIDs
• Conservation of nature: Planting trees,
Training communities in energy
conservation methods and alternative
sources of fuel to charcoal and fire wood.
08 – 10 Aug 2018 12BUSITEMA UNIVERSITY - UGANDA
Challenges
• Periodic activities during semester only. Some projects like tree
planting suffer because of lack of care.
• Funding of activities (Most activities funded by the faculty thus
limited)
• Attitude problems among communities make it difficult to sustain
initiated projects. There is no continuity once the university
community leaves the activity.
• Very engaging academic programmes leave little time for students to
be engaged fully in ESD activities
08 – 10 Aug 2018 13BUSITEMA UNIVERSITY - UGANDA
Recommendations
• Adopt best practices of youth involvement in ESD to ensure
sustainability of projects initiated.
• Seek other sources of financing activities.
• Scale up activities and follow up
• Change attitudes so that ESD can be embedded in individual courses
and not run as a cross cutting course.
• Build up human resource for the activities
08 – 10 Aug 2018 14BUSITEMA UNIVERSITY - UGANDA

Gender Equality. • The GEURCE and ESD association recognises the important roles that girls/ boys and women/men can play in achieving the SDGs and works to harness the contribution of all people to sustainable development. • Females are invaluable in achieving SDGs. • Females have been incorporated in association leadership and participation in implementing ESD activities.

  • 13. Challenges • Periodic activities during semester only. Some projects like tree planting suffer because of lack of care. • Funding of activities (Most activities funded by the faculty thus limited) • Attitude problems among communities make it difficult to sustain initiated projects. There is no continuity once the university community leaves the activity. • Very engaging academic programmes leave little time for students to be engaged fully in ESD activities 08 – 10 Aug 2018 13BUSITEMA UNIVERSITY - UGANDA
  • 14.
