Young Humanist Climate Action

As the climate crisis’s impact intensifies over time, it is the children and young people of today who will face the worst effects. So it will be the youth who have to be the main driving force for positive and long-term change in building a world where humanity can live in harmony with nature.

Climate change is, without doubt, one of our generation’s most significant challenges. The science is settled, climate change has already progressed from a scientific observation to a real, everyday phenomenon that affects how we live or die. However, unwilling to sit idly by, young people all around the world have begun to fight back on a never-before-seen magnitude.

And as the world and its people need all the support they can get in the pursuit of climate justice, Young Humanists International created the Young Humanist Climate Action.

Young Humanist Climate Action project aims:

  • To establish a united front of young humanists for climate action
  • To encourage climate change conversations and its interdependence with other human rights issues in the humanist movement
  • To educate and raise awareness on the current climate crisis and the environment
  • To communicate and promote the science behind climate change

Why should humanists care more about the climate crisis?

We asked this question to young humanists worldwide, and here’s what they have to say.
