Florida Fellowship

About Us:

Our Climate is a national non-profit that mobilizes young people to advocate for science-based and equitable pricing policies at the state and national level. By putting a price on carbon, we hold polluters accountable and transition our economy to a clean energy future. Students will train and organize other students, rallying public support for general climate action, and carbon pricing policy, then engage directly with elected officials.
