Today, we are thrilled to announce the launch of the #YouthStepUp Climate Contest. We want you to be the first to know about it.
This September, climate leaders from government, business, and civil society will convene at the landmark Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco. Their goal? To celebrate the achievements we've made in respect to climate action, and launch deeper commitments and accelerated action to prevent the worst effects of a warming world. Will you answer their call to "take ambition to the next level"?
As the largest voting block in the country, unprecedented numbers of young people are rising to meet the climate challenge, but even greater levels of action are required to protect our future. This begins with you.
We invite all 18 to 24 year olds living in the U.S. to design a concrete and implementable policy solution, sustainable business concept, advocacy campaign, land use design, or scientific proposal. Winners will receive cash prizes up to $5,000 and an all expenses paid trip to California to participate in the Summit and share their vision with international climate leaders.
Let's do it!
