Who We Are
BCCIC Climate Change is led by a group of committed youth under 25 years old, who are passionate about youth engagement and climate action.
As one of the most prominent youth-led and youth-driven initiatives in the international climate action space, we focus on gaining insight into the best-practices for youth empowerment, i.e. building youth capacity in policy research and analysis, project and budget management, and NGO operations. We build future careers and future worlds. Our continued success has proved that young people have the capacity to manage long-term multi-stakeholder projects.
Achieving an Intergenerational and Sustainable World
We seek solutions to enable systemic change and strengthen institutions to accelerate global climate action: Strong institutions, Ambitious actions.
By promoting youth engagement, BCCIC Climate Change encourages stewardship and sustainable development values among future designers, politicians, engineers, and architects of the world. Strengthening intergenerational collaboration entails providing mentorship and education to youth, as well as valuing young people’s opinions and creative solutions. We believe that sustainable development is built upon strong institutions, innovation and empowerment of future generations of leaders.
