For this study, we interviewed young people from a range of initiatives chosen to reflect the diversity of youth-led climate justice action. Some of their organisations are registered charities, others informal grass roots groups. Most are less than five years old, some have a small paid staff and almost all rely heavily on a small corps of regular volunteers.
Our interviewees converged on a number of key messages to funders. These are distilled into the three-part call to action below. For each element, we have suggested a solidarity statement that funders may wish to reflect on or adapt for their own use, regarding what action they can take to improve the quantity and quality of support for youth climate justice movements.
