About
Youth for Our Planet is the global youth movement calling for world leaders to take ambitious and urgent action on the oceans, biodiversity, the climate and sustainable development.


About
In 2020/21, world leaders will come together at 5 global environment conferences to make important decisions about nature and the climate. There has never been a greater opportunity to chart the course for slowing climate breakdown and protecting biodiversity for future generations.

Youth must be involved in these decisions.
