how to ENGAGE WITH YCL
Are you looking for innovative solutions in climate for your company? YCL network can help!
The YCL Global Network is ready to act as a consulting resource to support the many challenges within the climate crisis. We are a collective of talented climate changemakers, with diverse backgrounds and expertise, equipped with innovative methodologies to foster climate action.
We believe that human rights and the climate crisis are not separated issues.
A decarbonized society cannot flourish without addressing against systemic discrimination. For this reason, we extend scholarships and ensure that we have a diverse network. 40% of our alumni received financial support to join our learning journeys and our network. We also provide additional scholarships for black, low-income, and indigenous participants.
We adopt intersectional lenses to all our activities and programs, by referring more women and Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) professionals. If you are a climate professional that fits on these profiles, let us know in this form so we can refer to your work in future opportunities.
We recognise that this is just the first step towards promoting a more diverse climate movement. We encourage you to gather forces with us in this movement, by supporting us financially, and helping us in sponsoring more scholarships.
