ABOUT US

 WE ARE IN A CLIMATE CRISIS REQUIRING URGENT ACTION.

 OUR GENERATION WILL BE THE MOST AFFECTED  

 BY DECISIONS MADE TODAY IN CLIMATE POLICIES.  

 
OUR GOALS
  • Advocate for pragmatic, responsible, and ambitious climate policies  at the national and international level.

  • Raise awareness  about the emergency of the climate crisis and about the importance of local and global actions.

  • Mobilize the population, in particular the young generation, in favor of the ecological transition.

  • Take part in international climate conferences as Swiss civil society representatives. 

OUR HISTORY

Swiss Youth for Climate was established in 2015 as a non-partisan association. It quickly gained popularity and built an extensive network in Switzerland and abroad. We have regional groups in six cities in Switzerland, we conduct national political projects, and we participate to international climate negotiations.
