The Young Friends of the Earth Climate project is for young people from all over Europe who are ready to take climate action and demand climate justice for the people and the planet from our governments.

2009 is the pivotal year for climate change. In December the worlds’ governments will meet in Copenhagen to negotiate measures to stop climate change. Act Now!



If your are young (age 18 – 29), motivated and believe that our time has come to act, we invite you to join one of the four regional youth climate conferences that Young Friends of the Earth are organizing all over Europe.


From October 8 – 11, Act Now conferences will take place in Berlin, Toulouse, Malmo and – from Oct. 15 to 18 – in Dublin.


To apply, go to


At these European youth climate conferences, you, and more than 200 young Europeans will learn the latest news about climate change and the status of international climate politics, discuss with elected politicians and be trained how to run climate actions, do media work and motivate more young people to join the movement.


Finally, you will find out how to come to Copenhagen in December and we will jointly plan peaceful yet powerful actions to influence this crucial climate change conference.



To apply for one of the four conferences go to


Applications for all four conferences are open until September 10th.
