GCHA and the Youth Network Founding committee are excited to announce the launch of the

Launched in May 2022, the Youth Climate and Health Network (YCHN) supports young people who care about the health of people and planet to connect with each other. Our goal is to create a platform that facilitates solidarity, care, and collective action from a health and climate justice perspective.

Even as climate change poses a significant threat to our present and future wellbeing, young people have been powerful agents for climate justice, pushing to accelerate the urgent transformations needed to address climate change and protect our future. There are many youth actors, both individuals and organizations, in the climate and health community, and we want to build a space to bring those actors together.

As a member of YCHN, you will be able to connect with other passionate young people, share and grow your skills, and elevate the global youth voice for a healthy future. Our virtual platform provides the opportunity to work remotely across countries and timezones, participate in project-focused and regional groups, and connect with others in the broader climate and health movement.

We believe that YCHN will be a space where young people can network, exchange ideas, and in partnership, address the interlinkages of climate, health, social, and intergenerational justice. We welcome individuals from all backgrounds, including those with non-health backgrounds, as we recognise that health justice is a collective issue. We are excited to build this dynamic, vibrant, and interactive community with you, collaborating for a better and healthier world.

We are excited to invite your diverse talents into a dynamic, vibrant and interactive community to collaborate for a better and healthier world.

  • You are between 18 and 35
  • You care about people and the planet
