UKYCC is a non-profit volunteer group who rely on donations to run. We literally could not do what we do without the generosity of others and we appreciate any size of contribution that is made.
The funding we receive allows us to do the following:
Contribute to volunteer travel costs when attending our strategy and training weekends 3 times a year - this allows UKYCC to support our volunteers to ensure we are inclusive of all incomes.
Purchase supplies for any actions we organise, and any campaigns that we run. We endeavour at all times to ensure these supplies are sustainable and have as low a carbon impact as possible.
Cover accommodation for UKYCC's attendance at the annual United Nations Conference on Climate Change both in May and December each year.
Cover our website, legal, and insurance costs which allow us to operate day-to-day.
If you can donate today we will be forever grateful, and know that we will do everything we can to continue fighting for climate justice!
WHERE THE MONEY GOES
SPECIAL THANK YOU
POETRY SPEAK OUT
On Sunday the 23rd of June, a Climate Catastrophe: Poets Speak Out event was held in Cumbria in partnership with Grey Hen Press which brought together poets from the North of England to share their creative contributions to the climate crisis.
The event itself featured 10 poets and an almost full house. Despite the serious nature of climate change, the event ended up being a full of chat, laughter and inspiration.
The event was predominantly attended by the older generation, but there were young people present and the link between old and young was clear to see, with the older attendees in full support of the work of young people.
The event raised a total of £105 through entry fees, and a further £36 via a raffle, all of which was chosen to be donated to UKYCC.
UKYCC were so happy to hear about this event, as it brings together the creative arts and climate change in a community format which is not only inspiring and empowering, but shows the plethora of ways in which we can all come together, old and young, for climate change action!
If you are interested in organising a similar event, get in touch with us at hello(at)ukycc.org. We would love to hear about it and link you up with those who have experience.
