Community Team campaign training by Lizzie, Rupert, Cat and Grace in Edinburgh.

Hello! We are the UKYCC Community Team. We focus on community climate action and the small differences we can make in our local communities, which can often be overlooked by international climate agendas.

Does this sound like you? Do you want to join our latest project? We are looking for Sustainability Ambassadors!


After almost five years of the Local Catalyst Network, we are pursuing a new project in which we will be supporting and training young climate activists to make a difference in their own community; whether that be their school, their local park, their place of worship. We will provide you with invaluable skills to lead your own environmental projects which will be the key to combatting climate change. If your local community is badly affected by air pollution, food waste or just needs to improve its recycling schemes, the UKYCC Community Team is here to guide you towards an effective campaign. Our team is all-inclusive and we aim to make environmentalism accessible to everyone whether in the inner-city of London or the Scottish Highlands, the Community Team will be there to support you!

To help you get started The Community Team have put together a series of resource guides. Check them out here. (Or if you want to print them out use our B&W version here.)

Have a think about what you might want to change and apply here. If successful we can help you put together a proposal.

We’ll be here to help you with any problems- big or small! Plus we can put you in touch with other people trying to change the world they live in. We are currently organising what promises to be a fabulous away day in February where Ambassadors can share tips, ideas and make new friends.

We aim to make climate change activism a fun and exciting place and we maintain our stance that the UK government need to do more work to affect change!
