AYCCC Launches ‘The Open-source Hub’ Sustainability Platform

by Madaline Dunn

The Arab Youth Council for Climate Change (AYCCC), a program by the Arab Youth Center, has announced the launch of “Open-source Hub: Sustainability as a Second Language,” a new sustainability platform designed to facilitate the delivery of educational resources.

The platform is a flagship deliverable of its partnership with HSBC and Posterity Institute to provide easily accessible and curated open educational resources focused on sustainability.

It is designed for professors in higher education institutions in the region to host materials to facilitate the integration of the Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) into the classroom.

Dr. Yasar Jarrar, Managing Director of Posterity Institute, said the hub is a “significant milestone” to catalyse the sustainability movement among Arab youth. 

“This platform will support in equipping the next generation with the knowledge and skills needed to address the pressing challenges posed by climate change in the Arab World and beyond.”

Available free of charge and in both Arabic and English, the sustainability platform offers eight comprehensive modules covering all 17 SDGs and a wide range of topics within sustainability and climate change.

Course modules include: 

  • Introduction to sustainability, 
  • Global response to global challenges, 
  • The role of the private sector, 
  • Energy, 
  • Circular economies,  
  • Food and water security, 
  • Net-positive and 
  • Leveraging technology for good.

The Council has been working on the platform for the past two years in collaboration with its partners and hosted its soft launch at the 2024 World Future Energy Summit (WFES) at ADNEC.
