Eco clubs uniting together to create change!

What We Do

The Eco-Club Coalition (ECC), sponsored by  Youth4Climate welcomes high school environmental clubs from across the country. ECC is an inclusive and diverse group of students that meets monthly to provide support and guidance. By youth and for youth, ECC is a community of youth committed to addressing the climate crisis. We strategize together to discover the best ways to use  our collective power to mobilize students and organize impactful events. The ECC us designed to help you establish a new eco-club or take your existing club to the next level. We provide you with the resources and mentorship to strengthen your club so you can take on more powerful actions. Our voices are more powerful together! Join the ECC today!
