Youth Climate Justice Fund 2024 (US$20,000 Grant)

The Youth Climate Justice Fund is providing core flexible funding to emerging youth climate justice groups.

We bridge youth climate justice organizers with funders by providing organizers with more knowledge and opportunities to develop the capacity of your movement to be able to directly connect with funders.

For Youth Climate Justice Organizers

We believe that to achieve a fairer and more sustainable world we need to decentralise funding accessibility, thus we bridge youth movements with funding and youth-to-youth capacity development. We know that finding resources for youth-led climate justice work is difficult and can be overwhelming.

We work with youth organisers to better understand the different needs of the climate justice movement so we can collectively address them and build a stronger movement to equitably shift resources to historically underserved groups.
