About Us

We are the generation that will feel the effects of today's (lack of) climate change politics. It is therefore our moral obligation to engage in shaping climate policies. We believe we have the right to be heard. That is why we organize activities to rally the young generation around climate activism.
 

Our Activities

  • We advocate for pragmatic, responsible, and ambitious climate change policies at national and international levels.
  • We raise awareness about the climate crisis and the importance of both local and global actions.
  • We mobilize the public, in particular younger generations, to promote the ecological transition.
  • We participate in international climate conferences as Swiss civil society representatives.

Our History

Swiss Youth for Climate was established in 2015 by Océane Dayer when she realized that there were few youth organizations in Switzerland devoted to engaging young people in climate politics. The organization quickly gained popularity in Switzerland and abroad and built an extensive network of regional groups in various Swiss cities. Its main activities quickly centered around national political projects and participating in international climate negotiations.

MIKLÓS VESZPRÉMI
International Conferences Coordinator and Website Editor
When Miklós apprehended the true, terrifying consequences of climate change, he decided to give up his career as a concert pianist and devote himself to fighting climate change. Witnessing COP25 only deepend his conviction. Today, as he is finishing his PhD in music theory, he has begun consulting on climate change and human rights.
