Who We Are

The Youth Climate Action Network (YCAN) is an active and growing community of students, young adults, educators, climate leaders, and allies calling for climate justice and action in our region and across the planet.

As the generation that must live with the choices our leaders make today, we are raising up our voices to effect change. We deserve a world beyond fossil fuels—a world in which our leaders tell the truth, acknowledge the climate emergency and act at an emergency-level speed to stop it. The YCAN is a forum, platform and network established to help accomplish just that.

What We Do

We respond to the global climate emergency through education, leadership, civic engagement, and political action. We connect and collaborate with other organizations, movements, initiatives, and leaders to amplify our values and our voices in the call for climate justice and action. By spreading awareness and advocating for climate initiatives, we are becoming change makers by using our voices and harnessing individual power.
