OUR MISSION — Young people are at the forefront of the movement for climate justice. From working to divest our universities endowments, to fighting fossil fuel infrastructure through nonviolent direct action, to working with our elders and peers on local resiliency, we understand what is at stake if we fail to address the climate crisis. We are working for our futures and in solidarity with those that have yet to come, and we will not stop until we achieve our vision for a more just, more stable future for all.

Here are the principles we are working under.
