United Kingdom Youth Climate Coalition

The UK Youth Climate Coalition (UKYCC) is a youth group from the UK seeking to mobilize and empower young people to take positive action for global climate justice. They believe that climate change is imminent, man-made, and will exacerbate the already damaging structures of oppression that exist in our society. UKYCC strives to not only tackle climate change at its core, but to challenge the roots of social and climate injustice, creating a better world for all.

A group of 18-29 year olds volunteer and collaborate to work towards creating a vision of a just, sustainable world in which current and future generations enjoy and protect a healthy environment.
