Highlights of our projects

Handbook 2020

In 2020, young environmentalists published a handbook on protecting the environment.

 

The purpose of the handbook is to make advocacy accessible and understandable to young people.

 

Examples of what can be found in the book:

 

- How to write a formal application.

- How young people can increase their credibility and influence.

- What a steering network and democratic legitimacy are.

Climate strikes

Young environmentalists have taken part in organizing climate strikes under the auspices of Fridays for Future Iceland, where a number of associations and individuals come together and work towards a common goal.

We want to see a huge increase in climate action!

Young environmentalists' upper secondary school presentations promote education and awareness - raising about environmental issues among young people nationwide.

The presentations shed light on how environmental issues relate to young people and how young people can directly influence government decisions and daily life for the benefit of the environment.

Looking to the future, it is important that the country's young people are informed about the climate and the environment. There has been good experience of educating young people on a peer-to-peer basis.
