UKYCC AT THE LOCAL LEVEL
“The Community Working group’s aim is to engage local communities in the action against the climate emergency. The group’s projects span from the analysis of MPs’ voting record on climate change issues, to helping young people from local communities in Glasgow to raise their voice during the COP26.
Green MPs: creation of an online and easily accessible database where it is easy to see how MPs have voted on key climate issues since 2008 allowing voters to hold their MP accountable.-
Youth Engagement: study of what encourages and prevents people from getting involved in climate activism which can then be used by organisations to increase engagement with environmental issues.
Leadership campaign: A project to help and enable young people to start their own environmental campaigns; examples of work include the campaign to add a specific section for the climate crisis on the BBC News website.
