Our mission is to help everyone find a role in building a climate-safe world. Get started to make your personalized climate action plan today!
We are a group of young people who came together across seven countries and five continents to build a tool that would make a difference on the greatest challenge of our generation - climate change. As young people we feel climate action isn’t a choice - it’s an imperative if we want a world without catastrophic climate change. We are independent, non-partisan, evidence-based and diverse. We are entirely motivated by the urgency of building a climate-safe world. Our work has been supported financially by the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University, and founder of Kayak, Paul English.
Our mission is to help everyone find a role in building a climate-safe world. You Change Earth is a smart online tool to recommend personalized actions people can take to reduce their carbon footprint and connect with others to reduce climate pollution. You Change Earth empowers people and gives them the solutions, information and support to act effectively in tackling climate change.
The climate crisis is worsening and if we don’t significantly reduce emissions within the next ten years we risk increasing Earth’s temperature above the 1.5 degrees tipping point which risks catastrophic runaway climate change. Climate change is already bringing more extreme weather conditions and billions in costs but runaway climate change risks our very survival.
There is still time to avert a climate catastrophe if we all work together using our words and actions. We live in an interconnected world where individuals and companies both need to reduce the emissions which are causing the climate crisis. You Change Earth recommends actions that individuals can take to reduce their personal carbon footprint as well as using their voice to see positive corporate and political change. We connect people with groups campaigning for climate action.
