This circle works towards (1) supporting capacity building efforts by local governments focused on the resolution and transformation of existing and potential conflict and social tensions.  (2) creating initiatives to promote awareness about climate change, its effects and prospective mitigation, adaptation, and reversal solutions to this problem. These solutions include afforestation, ecologically sound tourism, and waste and environmental management. The circle contributes to increasing youth’s awareness about the importance of green economy and green jobs to build sustainable communities and contribute to ecological regeneration with equal emphasis on environment, peace, and inclusiveness of the marginalized communities.
