YOUTH CLIMATE LAB: HELPING YOUTH BUILD CLIMATE-RESILIENT FUTURES

Date: July 25

Time: 1:00-2:00 PM ET

Cost: Free Webinar

On July 25 Youth Climate Lab (YCL) leaders will discuss their non-profit organization’s beginnings, the reasons and motivation for the work and the societal gaps they noticed and were determined to fill by creating the organization.

YCL was founded in 2017 as a response to the absence of opportunities, spaces and resources for young people to take ownership of the climate crisis. They envisioned a world where young people – no matter who they are or where they are from – were supported to catalyze local and global action rooted in climate justice.

During this webinar, YCL will consider how to pivot and expand as an organization and particular challenges that exist within youth organizing and how to grow from them. They will share key moments in their journey to become a leading youth organization and the structures and mechanisms that were created to ensure continued success. Finally they’ll talk about how they build out and evaluate success in youth engagement within their current work and into the future. After sharing the inspiring YCL origin story and the secrets of their success presenters will engage in a lively Q and A.

We thank the Ivey Foundation for their funding support of this series.
