STREAMLINING ACCESS TO CLIMATE FINANCE

Finance

We acknowledge that access to finance for young people is a challenge. Access to financing is even harder from established entities that require documentation youth organizations starting out may not have. That is why we are working to reimagine and define global climate finance in the inter-generational context. The Global Youth Climate Action Fund seeks to streamline access to finance for youth.

Youth

We believe that young people are the drivers to sustainable development and green economies. Most of the population in developing countries are young people therefore they have a larger stake in climate change. Climate Change will affect the lives of young people in this and the next decade. Which is why we are committing resources to enable young people bring their actions to life.

Climate Action 

For the world to move towards reduced emissions, we need the contribution of everyone from every sector, playing their part. Young people play a pivotal role in championing climate action. From advocating for policies internationally to creating opportunities at the grassroots level. Supporting initiatives and ventures that create climate opportunities especially is key towards lowering emissions.

What Is Youth Led Climate Action?

Youth led climate action is any initiative, activity, project or program that is being coordinated or led by a young individual, a youth organization, community based organization, business venture that is geared towards climate adaptation, mitigation as a primary focus of the organization or entity (where the purpose of founding this organization was to solemnly combat climate change) or as a secondary focus (where the  purpose of founding this organization was to commit to reducing their carbon foot print).

We offer a wide range of climate financing solutions for young people to enable them to take effective action on climate change.
