Youth Climate Justice Fund Youth Climate Justice Fund

We support youth climate justice movements with trust-based funding, resources and youth-to-youth capacity development.

We believe in the incredible power of youth-led movements driving climate justice.

Youth-led climate justice movements are at the heart of climate and socio-environmental justice. We drive ambitious, fair, and sustainable transitions worldwide. From leading a huge socio-environmental movement in 2018  to holding policy-makers to their promises every day, youth climate movements are a driving force for change.

What is the situation?

Funding for youth climate justice movements is crucially lacking.

Only 0.76% of climate grants from the largest climate foundations go to youth-led climate justice initiatives. Being the youth projects led by women, indigenous, queer people and local communities those that face the strongest structural inequalities (Youth Climate Justice Study, 2022).
