Spotlight on: Youth Action on Climate Change

Amplifying youth voices in the climate movement

Youth Action on Climate Change is a community incubator for young environmental leaders.

They focus on action projects that create change at a local level.  

Tyler De Sousa tells us the emphasis on youth participation and on action sets apart YACC from other groups.

While strikes, marches and lobbying are an important part of the movement, this group takes action at a local level where you can see the result within months, he says. 

Right now, YACC is working on a sustainable transit project in Guelph and a food systems project in Waterloo.
