The climate crisis is a threat to our planet. Already the cause of extreme weather events such as floods, fires and droughts, the rising temperatures and food and water shortages, in particular in the global South, are all signs that the climate crisis is worsening.
Young people are at the forefront of global social movements demanding climate action. However, world leaders are not doing enough to respond to these calls.
The European Youth Forum views the climate crisis as a systemic issue that can only be solved by tackling the root causes. We work directly with EU decision-makers to advocate for systemic change to how our economy works and to ensure that young people are meaningfully included and heard in decision making.
Time for system change, not climate change to end the short-sighted policies and push for ambitious, necessary change!
