Through its Climate Resilient Islands Programme, international NGO Live and Learn Environmental Education works with communities throughout the Asia Pacific region to strengthen community resilience to the impacts of climate change through nature-based approaches.
Architects Without Frontiers and Network Partner Hayball are working with Live and Learn to develop a series of Climate Change Resilience Centres throughout the South Pacific, starting in Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, and Solomon Islands. These buildings will provide space for environmental education, skills building, information sharing and office space, as well as acting as exemplars for Climate and Ecosystem-sensitive design.
The Centres will be used primarily to host educational programs and resources to build climate change resilience and support climate activism in vulnerable communities.
