SYCAN’s purpose is to support youth-led action on climate change. For the past 3 years, we experimented with different models for youth leadership that led to summer action projects, awesome events, and teens who strongly identified with SYCAN. Now that we have the opportunity to reimagine SYCAN, we are prioritizing youth’s experiences, passions, and priorities for action to structure the YLT to be even better.
Equity and Environmental Justice
The Seattle Youth Climate Action Network has strong values of equity and environmental justice. Those values have emerged both from conversations with youth about their values and priorities and conversations with our steering committee members.
