On October 5, 2023, a new chapter began as we launched the YEAH (Youth for Environmental Action and Hope) Programme at Goethe-Institute Myanmar, one of our valued venue partners. YEAH is a collaborative effort between Prevent Plastics and Thant Myanmar, designed to empower and educate Myanmar’s youth about environmental sustainability.
YEAH’s mission is to equip the youth with the skills and knowledge to actively contribute to sustainable development. Our comprehensive curriculum covers a wide range of environmental topics, fostering a deep passion for conservation and positive change.
By nurturing environmentally conscious and empowered youth, YEAH aims to create a brighter future for Myanmar and the planet. We instill purpose and provide practical tools for young people to make a meaningful impact on environmental issues.
We’re excited that the programme will commence in a hybrid style, enabling 25 youths from across Myanmar to participate.
Here’s a glimpse of our orientation activities:
Welcome Remark by Mr. Carl FROSIO, Programme Manager, European Union in Myanmar, inspiring youth to become change-makers for the environment through this programme.
Onboarding Remark by Mr. Denis Schaefer, Team Leader at Prevent Plastics, offering guidance on the program’s scope.

The First Class: “How to be an Environmentalist?” by Mr. Freidor Jeske, Thant Myanmar, marking the beginning of our environmental leadership journey.
Stay tuned for more updates and inspirational moments as we embark on this transformative journey!
