About Us

WE ARE IN A  CLIMATE CRISIS REQUIRING  URGENT ACTION.
OUR GENERATION WILL BE THE  MOST AFFECTED
BY  DECISIONS MADE TODAY IN CLIMATE POLICIES.

Our Vision

  • Advocate for pragmaticresponsible, and ambitious climate policies at national and international level.
  • Raise awareness about the emergency of the climate crisis and about the importance of local and global actions.
  • Mobilize the population, in particular the young generation, in favor of the ecological transition.
  • Take part in international climate conferences as Swiss civil society representatives.

Our History

Swiss Youth for Climate was established in 2015 by Oceane Dayer due to the lack of a youth organisation engaging youth in climate politics on a national and international level. It quickly gained popularity and built an extensive network in Switzerland and abroad. We established regional groups in various cities in Switzerland and conduct a variety of national political projects and participate to international climate negotiations.
