Youth Think Climate (YTC) is an entirely youth-led publication that aims to amplify youth voices in the fight to stop climate change. YTC was born during the COVID-19 pandemic, when the ability for youth to express their views digitally became all the more important. The team sought creative ways to empower young people to spread their powerful and necessary message.
YTC was formed through the Alliance for Climate Education (ACE). To learn more about ACE and how to get involved with tackling climate change, visit their website here: acespace.org
The YTC team firmly believes that young voices and their insights are critical to the climate movement, and will create an equitable and just future. YTC aims to empower youth voices in the climate crisis by providing a unique platform to present art and writings in a variety of forms and mediums.
Youth Think Climate (YTC) was founded in Spring 2020 by a group of 6 Alliance for Climate Education (ACE) Fellows from Wisconsin and Florida. After several meetings over Zoom, and with the support of ACE, they published their first edition, Climate Denial, in July 2020. Since then, the team has expanded to 16 people, each of whom contributed their own unique insights and work to the publications of the second (Climate Justice) and third (Earth Month) editions. The expansion enabled the team to publish new Instagram content, as well as a website in June 2021.
