Underground School (YEA! partner)

Underground School is a program focused on teaching and encouraging an effective analytical framework to support students in understanding the systems of oppression around them. Along with political education and movement history, Underground School gives youth organizers hard skills so that hey can organize collective action to challenge the status quo with a solid analytical framework.

New Website!

In addition to these two events, we are super proud to announce the launch of our redesigned website, and invite you to explore! 

 

The new site was designed to be easier to navigate and bring Climate Generation’s work to a modern digital landscape as we continue to grow our programming.

 

Some of the great new features include:

  • A new searchable, comprehensive resource library featuring our free downloadable discussion guides, toolkits, and more for youth climate action (and the greater educator / community audiences we work with!) 

  • A new homepage for the YEA! program, featuring upcoming events and meetings, opportunities to share youth climate stories, and an easier-to-navigate process for applying for our stipended roles and Youth Action Fun*d!  

    • Have a partner event you’d like us to feature for our calendar? Email trevor@climategen.org to get started. 

  • A redesigned blog and digital storytelling collection to enhance the experience of centering personal narratives in the climate movement.
