Bilha’s Experience as a Yale Emerging Climate Leader Fellow

The recently concluded inaugural Yale Emerging Climate Leaders Fellowship 2022 kicked off in late November 2022, with our very own Co-Founder Bilha Ndirangu selected as one of the climate practitioners for the fellowship.

This eight-month program offered an opportunity for 16 young climate and clean energy practitioners from across the Global South to broaden their technical skills, deepen their professional networks, and exchange views with top global clean energy and climate change leaders.

Fellows began the program in late November 2022 at the Yale University campus in New Haven, Connecticut, taking part in a series of interactive sessions with prominent Yale faculty and practitioners to set the terms of the global climate change debate. The program then continued with a series of remote learning sessions featuring top international experts on the full range of policy issues associated with climate change and the clean energy transition. The fellowship concluded in June 2023 with an in-person week in Paris, including meetings with top international climate change analysts.

“The idea of building a global south network of fellows is notable and will be key to tackling climate issues in the years to come. I look forward to building this network with the current and future fellows, and seeing what we will do to address climate change. And for the Global South to play a meaningful role in the climate discussion.” – says Bilha
