Ghana's youth climate movement

An independent youth institutional mechanism sourced from existing youth-climate NGOs, bringing the opinions of youth CSOs, young people, and the public into all the national climate-related decision-making processes as an equal stakeholder.

Our work

Building and strengthening the youth climate movement in Ghana to advocate and support the public and private sector to increase climate ambition.

Our Mission

Promoting grassroots activism through a democratic effort and building the resilience of young activists to enhance Ghana’s local engagement on climate policies.

Our Vision

Unifying climate activists and youth-led climate groups to create an institutional mechanism for a unified and collaborative movement that delivers a high positive impact.

Come along with the movement of youth influencing the national climate-related policies for a sustainable tomorrow.

It’s all possible, we can do it together.

We want to live on a healthy, inclusive planet. A planet where opinion and voice of youth CSOs, young people, and the public matter in climate-related decisions because they are equal stakeholders, and where our quality of life is measured in climate actions, not things we have or own.

Our fight to save the planet and its people is growing more and more serious. The devastating impacts of climate change, destruction of forests and the deterioration of our rivers continue to loom large, and this is more concerning for youth.

In many ways, we’re in the fight for our future. The inequitable system is the same one that landed us in a climate and extinction crisis. Our members in Ghana and across the globe are fighting for our climate and our communities, and abuse of the earth’s ocean, land, air, and fresh water. Through our youth training, research, movement building, and advocacy, we’ve been campaigning for a green future for the past 2 years, and we’re not stopping now.

We are building capacity to protect our planet

We engage and mobilize young people to train and build the needed capacity of youth groups to improve bottom-up participation, especially civil society organizations and youth-led movements that are active in environmental and climate-related matters.

    What we stand for

    We are part of youth climate movements across the world meaningfully influencing policy and strengthening organizational capacities through resource solidarity, providing an avenue for every young person, youth-led organization, and civil society to bring their opinions into climate-related decision-making processes.

    Our work and footprints

    In our work, we call for public dissemination and consultation on existing national climate policies to enhance stakeholder understanding of these policies so they can independently evaluate them and demand accountability.

    We call on the government and the private sector to make grants available to young people to accelerate youth innovations and initiatives on climate change and ensure the enforcement of sanitation laws whilst promoting the reduction, reuse, and recycling of waste.

    We also demand the inclusion of all relevant stakeholders, especially young people, in promoting biodiversity and nature conservation activities, young women, and children in all national climate change dialogues and policies.
