THE GREEN YOUTH CLIMATE FUND
The Green Youth Climate Fund is a newly established institution seeking to be the first financing mechanism within the international processes to support young people in their climate action agenda. The inspiration to this fund is based on intergenerational equity and sustainable development that will seek to secure the needs of the future generation through the young people. The core agenda stems from 25 years of fruitless climate change negotiations and IPCC reports that have only advanced policy with little action. The Green Youth Climate Fund is a call to action to global leaders that young people are ready for the takeover. It is a race to 2030 by young people against the IPCC 1.5 special report that indicates effects will become irreversible in less than 10 years.
We are running out of time and only youth can accelerate climate action.
We recent projects
Direct and Indirect Access Projects
Some of ongoing projects
Adaptation for Green Jobs Programme
As a secretariat we set aside USD 2M for the programme which will strive to bring the balance between adaptation and mitigation finance. The programme will also go towards ensuring balance in global climate finance distribution. The programme will seek to create 360 green jobs in Africa, Asia and South America
Youth for green growth programme
The institution sets aside USD 2M towards this programme that will go along way in supporting young people to contribute towards global climate finance goals at national level through the NDCs and NAMAs implementation. The project will support young people to also connect with key climate change players at every level.
COP-Timizing Climate Finance Project
This project seeks to localize and mainstream finance information to the young people at the grassroot level who may not have a chance to be in the key climate finance platforms. The information is harnessed from credible sources such as COPs, SBs, SCF meetings and from key entities such as CPI and SCF.
