YCL was created to tackle the two main threats against Youth's future: systemic unemployment and the climate crisis.

YCL ACTIVITIES IN A TIMELINE

 

Created in 2018 by four Brazilian women, Youth Climate Leaders (YCL) offers solutions to help young people tackle two main challenges of this century: the climate crisis and structural unemployment. Although young people make up the majority of the global population, they continue to encounter barriers to job opportunities and economic security, while dealing with an uncertain future due to the climate crisis.

 

To reverse this scenario, we aim to empower 1 million young people to lead climate projects as part of a global network. We believe that it is possible to propagate professional opportunities for young people through education and bridging gaps with organizations that already operate in this sector. We also offer access to a global network and opportunities in organizations and projects engaged in the transition to a more just and carbon neutral society.

YCL VALUES:

Action based on Science

Collaboration and Community

Courage to act

Lifelong learning

Intergenerationality

Inclusion and Justice

Urgency and solutions-focused

MISSION STATEMENT:

MAXIMIZE THE CAPACITY OF GLOBAL YOUTH TO LEAD TOGETHER ON SOLUTIONS TO THE CLIMATE CRISIS
