AS PART OF A GLOBAL NETWORK
Founder and CEO
from Brazil (YCL Brazil Course 2019)
My experience as a young, low-income young black person sponsored by YCL was tremendous to boost my expertise in climate change, in particular, social and climate justice, climate litigation and environmental racism. This opportunity gave me access to the YCL Network by establishing contacts and partnerships for the development of projects and actions in the area of climate change, as well as, job vacancies, events and even mentoring.
This participation also changed my career perspective and I left the YCL Brazil Course encouraged and energized to think about what the young climate leadership wants for the planet and for future generations.Besides helping the career perspective of many young people, YCL also aims to democratize their spaces by increasing representation of black and low-income people, therefore deserves full support and visibility in their actions.
