Promoting Environmental Activism Among Youth

It's mission is to unite students to act against climate change globally, to mobilize environmental youth activists to tackle the misconception that climate change is bigger than any one person, to challenge the popular belief that sustainability can be achieved solely through governmental action, and to foster holistic support for individual projects that aim to change the future from a bleak one to a sustainable one.
