Our vision is that young people in the UK are enabled to lead, advocate and take action towards environmentally sustainable behaviours, career choices and societal change.

We are a registered charity (No. 1100981) with a mission to inspire young people in the UK to become leaders and advocates for action on climate change.

We work collaboratively to deliver climate sustainability programmes to engage young people (primarily age 11-18) across the UK with the complexities of climate change, inspire their climate action, and promote their voices in their own sustainable future.

What problem are we trying to solve?

Climate change is the challenge of our generation. Its root cause is clear – an economic and societal model that is exhausting the limited resources of our planet. It is critical that youth are empowered to act on climate change and its root causes – but they currently lack opportunities to act across lifestyle, career and society.

We work by bringing together networks of schools, partner organisations, funders and young people. We focus on engaging with young people from a wide variety of socio-economic backgrounds and existing attitudes towards climate change, connecting the global reality of climate change and its effects with opportunities for local action and sustainable career choices.

Erasmus+ I-CAN – a joint project with international links which draws together educators seeking to engage school children to think critically about climate change, collaborate sustainably and act justly

Climate Voices – our core programme from 2015-2021 inspire youth climate voices and action through a programme of UN-style climate conferences and resources to facilitate action in schools
