Message from the Founder

Around the world, young people are waking up to the challenge of the environment. It is in our hands to create a future where we live in harmony with the nature which supports us and gives us life. 

We are INTERNATIONAL, because the environment knows no borders. We are all in this together, and we must work together to take the fantastic opportunities and solve the tough challenges ahead. 

We are passionate about DIALOGUE, because there is so much to learn, and because the relationships that come from good dialogue are the foundation stones of solidarity. 

We care more than anything for our ENVIRONMENT.

And we are committed to ACTION, practical environmental steps which young people can take to lead the way in their families, communities, and countries. 



We take our share of responsibility in creating – ONE EARTH, ONE FUTURE!
