Summary

Last December, SustainUS delegates traveled to Paris for the COP21 climate talks and fight for a just and meaningful deal at the UN. Now, we're working to keep up the advocacy. By covering travel costs and providing small stipends to key SustainUS leaders in 2016, we can build a lasting advocacy team to keep the pressure on our leaders to implement and improve the agreement reached at Paris.

Challenge

It's no secret the world is on a dangerous path. Climate devastation, corporate control, deforestation and desertification, and multinational industries pushing for inequitable, unsustainable developments are on the rise. Youth are set to inherit a world filled with unprecedented environmental problems, and yet under traditional legislative structures have far less representation than we deserve. So it's up to us to get creative and build the just and prosperous world we want to inherit.

Solution

SustainUS empowers young people to advance justice and sustainability at the United Nations, in Washington DC, in our own communities, and all around the nation. We're training young leaders to advocate for just, equitable policies, and push for them in all arenas. We're helping build a movement for climate justice by supporting trainings and actions, and we're amplifying narratives of youth and solutions through strategic media work.

Long-Term Impact

In the long term, we know that no single policy win will not be enough. Our work in 2016 will contribute to tangible advances in policy while also refining our members' skills in advocacy, actions, and media work. If successful, SustainUS members will become lifelong advocates who make substantial contributions towards climate justice, social inequality, and sustainable development.
