Our Projects

We are proud to have designed projects that have reached young people in over 35 countries. These include:

 
 

Our2030 Lab Series

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent the world’s most ambitious agenda: to achieve dignity and prosperity for all by 2030. For today’s youth, this means making progress on important social and environmental issues while grappling with a rapidly changing world and workplace.

We designed the Our2030 Lab Series with the support from the Government of Canada to pilot new ways for young people to take action on the SDGs while building their skills and solutions for a changing future of work. Learn more: https://www.our2030.org/

Greenpreneurs

In partnership with the Green Growth Global Institute (GGGI) and Student Energy, we designed Greenpreneurs, a four-month virtual accelerator program and business plan competition for youth-led solutions that positively impact the future of energy; water and sanitation; land-use and agriculture; and green city development. In 2018, we received over 350 submissions from across the world. Learn more: https://www.greenpreneurs.co/

 

Pop-up Labs

At events and conferences around the world, YCL hosts #PopUpLabs, a physical and interactive space designed to engage, empower and connect youth to the mentorship and resources they require to transform their ideas into action.

Youth Climate Mentorship Program

YCL has partnered with the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Environment and Climate Change, the Seychelles Ministry of Environment, International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), and GGGI to provide youth from across the world an opportunity to work within their governments and IGOs to complete meaningful, concrete policy work to present at COP24. This program will also become platform to share best practices and network with youth worldwide, bridging the intergenerational gap nationally and internationally.

Seychelles Support Team (SST)

The SST brings together youth from Seychelles and around the globe to provide support to the Seychelles delegation to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The SST is a model for meaningful youth engagement in UNFCCC processes that equips youth to engage and participate, while also promoting exchange between Global North and Global South and awareness of climate change issues facing SIDS. At the 24th Conference of the Parties (COP24) to the UNFCCC in December 2018, our SST included 13 young people from 9 countries.
