What do we do?
Globally, 59% of youth and young adults said they were very or extremely worried about the impacts of climate change. Meanwhile, only 53% of national educational curriculums reference climate change.
Therefore, the FXB Climate Advocates program is filling a void in climate education and meeting a critical need to address the root cause of the climate crisis: providing youth with the tools and resources to take action.
Our program focuses on climate solutions and action so youth can harness their hope and optimism into tangible change in their communities.
This is done through three stages.
