This publication showcases over 10 case studies from our climate change portfolio in which youth have played a l,eading role. These projects can serve as a source of inspiration for expanding engagement with youth in addressing climate change. Employing a range of tools, young people have led and promoted the use of renewable energies, carbon footprint mapping, tree planting, disaster risk reduction measures, as well as communicated the urgency of taking action on climate change through environmental awareness raising events. In this process universities, schools, research organizations, media and government departments have played a critical role in partnering with youth organizations and scaling up their efforts.
