As the future leaders and workers of the world, youth are major stakeholders in the climate crisis and how it is solved.

The International Youth Climate Movement (IYCM) is a large group of connected friends, campaigners and optimistic humans on this earth lobbying for a fairer, cleaner and healthier world for all. The IYCM is made up of young individuals or groups working on grassroots projects, international campaigns and direct engagement with decision-makers to combat climate change and the threat it leaves millions of people world-wide. Within this movement, UKYCC’s International Team operates using engaging and fun ways for young people to take positive action, often through campaigns with coalition partners or direct involvement with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)

Within the UNFCCC, Youth NGO’s have an official constituency it works with (YOUNGO) to help strengthen the overall climate movement and support the IYCM at UN negotiations each year. YOUNGO is an open and inclusive constituency which anyone can join regardless of your capacity and which operates under a democratic system with other youth groups from around the world. UKYCC’s international team works collaboratively with many youth groups worldwide and you can find a full list of these below.
