The National Climate Justice Youth Exchange (NCJYE) is a new and dynamic network, training hub, and policy action center for youth leaders from communities that face heightened risks from climate change, but fall off the radar of policy makers. Informed by a track record of successful partnerships, Global Kids will incubate, test, and refine potentially scalable strategies and models for constituency development that will broaden grassroots civic engagement around climate change policy and activism.
