The Wild Center: The Youth Climate Program, American Climate Leadership Awards 2023 Finalist
The Wild Center’s Youth Climate Program is among 10 American Climate Leadership Award finalists to be recognized at the American Climate Leadership Awards Ceremony on March 30 during the live broadcast.
The Wild Center’s Youth Climate Program works to convene, engage, connect and empower young people around the world to take action on climate change.
The Youth Climate Program inspires young people to act on climate change through conference-style “Youth Climate Summits” that focus on the knowledge and skills – climate science, impacts, justice and solutions – needed to effectively lead on climate change. Summits empower youth to generate Climate Action Plans to implement in their schools and communities. Using the YCS Toolkit, Summits have been replicated globally and are recognized as a pathway for youth engagement on climate change.

The purpose of the American Climate Leadership Awards, hosted by ecoAmerica, is to recognize, reward and share best practices on climate change advocacy and action nationwide. The Awards provide money, support, and recognition for real climate leadership. Individuals and organizations selected as semifinalists have achieved success in building some meaningful political resolve for climate action at local, regional, and national levels, in ways that are replicable, while demonstrating diversity, inclusion, and justice.
ecoAmerica builds institutional leadership, public support, and political resolve for climate solutions in the United States. We help national mainstream organizations elevate their climate leadership, providing them strategy, tools, and resources to: demonstrate visible climate leadership, empower climate literacy, engage all constituents, and build collective action and advocacy. We help our partners transform into national climate leaders who inspire others on solutions. ecoAmerica.org
