Driven by an enduring commitment to training and empowering the younger generation in an era where environmental consciousness is burgeoning, ‘Youth for Earth’ is born. Engaging closely with youth, we’ve noticed their heightened concern and aspiration to contribute to our planet’s sustainability. However, they grapple with fundamental questions: How can they enact tangible change? What practical steps can they take in their daily lives to combat environmental challenges?

The pressing need for our mission is underscored by recent findings. Reports show a continuous surge in worry about climate change. A global survey indicates that 80% of the youth consider climate change as the paramount threat to humanity today. Moreover, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns that the opportunity to prevent catastrophic global warming is swiftly diminishing.”
