What we care about

Our projects create opportunities and build skills for youth in
climate policy and climate entrepreneurship.


We empower the next generation of climate decision-makers.

Climate policy sets the course for governments of all levels to tackle climate change. We create projects that meaningfully engage youth to understand, participate and drive climate-related decision-making at the highest levels.

We spark and support youth-led climate projects and businesses. 

Climate entrepreneurship creates the opportunities to achieve prosperity, empower the most vulnerable and achieve our climate goals. We create projects that help youth create projects and businesses that tackle climate change.  

Check out what we’ve been up to lately.
