Climate Generation: Youth Solidarity to meet the climate challenge

To give youth, envy and the means to commit to the climate, the FNH and the FORIM launch “Génération Climat”

Sensitizing young people to the challenges of climate change and the resulting inequalities, encouraging them to become actors of solidarity and assisting them in the definition and implementation of projects in France or abroad are the objectives of the Climate Generation Program. Designed by the Foundation for Nature and Man (created by Nicolas Hulot) and the Forum of International Solidarity Organizations (FORIM), “Génération Climat” is aimed at young people aged 15-35. On the web and in the field, many tools and various activities are proposed to them. From reflection to action, every effort is made to stimulate the desire to act and to promote the implementation of initiatives against climate change.
