Climate Action: Race to Zero International

Giving young people the confidence and opportunity to speak up about climate change and inspire change in their community.

This programme gives young people a voice and amplifies unheard stories to bring communities together, shining a light on revolutionary ideas to halt the damage of climate change.

We will deliver public speaking and communication skills workshops targeted at the least confident young people in the UK, in partnership with schools and youth organisations.

To ensure that no young person misses out on the opportunity this programme we will be working with our partners across the world to offer resources, online webinars, videos, and opportunities to speak publicly for all young people across the globe.

We will give every young person the opportunity to upload a video of their speech about climate change to our online platform and in January we will host a high profile ‘TED Style’ youth speaking event with young people speaking out in front of an audience of decisions makers.

“What an engaging and empowering way to end my day- brilliant to hear young people with such important insights and ideas to share about Climate Change!”

Josie Verghese, Head of BBC Young Reporter + Assistant Editor, BBC News Development

“I want to express our huge, huge thank you to you and the whole team for this opportunity! Both trainers were truly fantastic and they have done amazing work! Very useful skills from the perspective of our programme. I only regret that many people who registered at the end didn’t join. Not sure how to minimize that for the next time. Some of the participants found it very stressful being asked to speak and they resigned at the last moment. I hope we can stay in touch and repeat the session someday again.”


“I would like to express my thanks to you for an engaging session with our students. Your patience in dealing with our students, who have an array of different needs, was most exemplary. The fact that you were able to elicit responses and get students to talk through the topic was a credit to your facilitating and personal skills. I hope we are able to work with your organisation again.”

“You spoke BEAUTIFULLY. You are more powerful than you know. The power comes from your voice, and your willingness to use it: you saw you already had the attention of adult leaders in the climate world. If you continue to speak as we just heard you, sustain the courage to speak up in that slow, confident, generous, passionate manner, then you will be a leader. You will make the world change!”
