Apply for our Youth Advisory Council

Are you passionate about climate action? Are you creative?  Our youth-only advisory council wants to hear from you! Youth 13-24 from around the world are invited to apply to join.  

Our Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is a youth-led initiative that helps dedicated young climate activists engage in climate awareness and innovative ideas. In the YAC, you will also master important skills that you can use outside of environmental justice: managing tasks, public speaking, and leadership. By collaborating with board, advisory, and staff members, you will learn about the inner workings of a nonprofit.

Launch of NYC Climate Heroes

The NYC Climate Heroes exhibit is a series of NYC street signs celebrating the diversity, innovation, and creativity of New Yorkers leading on climate action. These climate heroes are making our City more healthy, resilient, and just.   We are proud to share the stories of this amazing team of activists, policymakers, innovators, and educators.

Thanks to the NYC Department of Transportation Arts and Events Program for supporting this project. 

Climate sHeroes Downtown

We are so excited to announce that our Global and NYC Climate sHeroes exhibits have been reprinted and are on display in Lower Manhattan.  Just in time for Women's History Month, we are celebrating the work and leadership of 18 women from NYC and across the global South.  These women exemplify the climate leadership we need in our communities.  Come visit the exhibits through the end-of-May.
