The Youth Action Against Climate Change APPG runs events and activites in parliament with the purpose of elevating youth voices on environmental degradation and climate change in Westminster.

The goal of the APPG is to provide a platform to elevate youth voices on climate change and environmental degradation in Westminster, and specifically to:

  • Give young people the opportunity to interact with politicians and experts on a variety of topics via panel discussions and Q&A sessions.
  • Provide a forum for politicians to proactively seek out the voice of youth when working on key environmental legislation and other initiatives.

In 2021, InterClimate Network (ICN) was appointed as the Secretariat of the APPG.

What is an APPG?

All-Party Parliamentary Groups, forums and commissions are informal groups of Members of both Houses with a common interest in particular issues. The views expressed in the webpages are those of the groups.

Is the APPG an official parliamentary committee?

This is not an official feed of the House of Commons or the House of Lords. It has not been approved by either House or its committees.

How can I get involved?

If you would like to get involved with the APPG, or if you know of a young person or school in your constituency who would be interested in taking part, please contact Rupali Nahar-Williams at
