Young people are looking out for the planet.
But who’s looking out for us?
In 2019, 1.6 million youth took to the streets.
It was hailed "the year of the youthquake" as we joined the call for climate justice.
Why we do what we do
- We demanded that governments around the world declare a climate emergency
- We demanded a European Green New Deal
- We demanded mass divestment of fossil fuels from schools and universities
We achieved all of this, but around the world it has left us with:
Climate anxiety, burnout and loneliness
Severe climate mental health impacts
State violence, extreme trolling and threats to safety
We can meet our global climate targets only with supported, resilient and connected youth changemakers. Support us to enable youth-led change.
