Abstract

Climate change impacts are affecting communities in the Limpopo Province, South Africa. However, only limited evidence exists about awareness level of local communities about climate change impacts. In this paper we investigate influence of environmental education programs, currently being implemented by different NGOs, on the level of awareness about climate change impacts among young people in two communities of the Limpopo province. We collect empirical data during two focus groups discussions in a rural and a township community in the Limpopo province. During these focus group discussions we apply different participation tools to facilitate the discussion and to collect the participants’ views.
