The Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC) is an independent, non-profit and non-partisan organisation with 120,000 supporters and over 750 active volunteers nationally. We educate, engage and inspire young people to take action on climate change and sustainability.
We believe that the only way to solve the climate crisis is through a social movement - a groundswell of support and momentum that is powerful enough to inspire the change we need and hold decision makers to account. We do this through:
• National grassroots networks where volunteers are supported, through one-to-one mentoring and local groups.
• Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network: a national network of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people who are leading climate justice campaigns.
• Switched on Schools: each year we educate thousands of high school students about how to make a difference on climate change, and empower them to start their own campaigns in their school or community.
• Strategic national campaigns such as stopping the Adani from wrecking our Reef and climate with their dangerous Carmichael coal mine.
We are empowering our generation to make sure history is not written for us, but by us.
