Established in 2006, the African Youth Initiative on Climate Change links the issue with sustainable growth, including poverty reduction, and allows youth activists throughout the continent to share ideas, strategies and classes. This week, IEN shares an interview with Jeffrey P. Carpenter (@jeffpcarpenter), the newest within the Lead the Change Series for the Educational Change Special Interest Group of the American Educational Research Association. Carpenter is an Associate Professor of Education and Director of the Teaching Fellows Program at Elon University in Elon, North Carolina, and he has been a trainer in high colleges and middle schools in Japan, Honduras, and the United States. The minister also stated Indonesia has reopened some colleges within the country’s “poorest” and “most marginalized” regions where the danger of Covid-19 unfold is assessed to be relatively low. Many schools in Indonesia have remained shut since March as authorities wrestle to comprise the coronavirus disease or Covid-19.
