UCC’s Climate Hope Summer 2023: Engaging Youth and Young Adults
Environmental Justice Fellow in dialogue with other environmental justice advocates
In 2022, the UCC launched a successful environmental justice fellowship program for youth and young adult leaders. The participants engaged in projects with UCC churches or UCC-affiliated organizations that deepened their knowledge about environmental justice. They also received mentoring and served their communities in new and creative ways. These youth leaders are now better equipped to advance environmental justice work!
With your gift, in summer 2023, we will expand this project’s success and invite 12 youth and young adults from various communities to participate in Climate Hope Summer, a program that will create a coordinated network for environmental justice advocacy and action all over the country. Through the voices of the next generation, we can more effectively advocate for climate legislation that will meet the scale of the present crisis.
