Young Friends of The Earth Europe has taken an important role in Reclaim Power - a collaboration of social movements, international networks, NGOs and grassroots groups from across the globe that work together with the aim to fight dirty energy projects, transform energy systems and combat climate change. This year, we need your help to work alongside them to fight for climate justice between October 10th and 18th.

Young Friends of the Earth Europe is a grassroots network of young people and youth organisations working collectively for social and environmental justice on a local, national and European level. We organise events and inspire young people to take action, on issues ranging from climate change, food and agriculture and education for sustainability – to ensure the voices of young people are heard in Europe and beyond.
