When you join UKYCC you’ll be joining one of our great teams:


  • The Communications Working Group - is the voice of UKYCC and creatively projects our message of climate justice using social media, blogs, videos, pitching to journalists and of course, memes.


  • The Community Working Group  - organises campaigns and actions around climate and social justice, with the aim of radically reimagining oppressive systems and building climate justice utopias.


  • The Systems Change Working Group - challenges the fossil fuel industry and hypocritical governments, whilst nurturing alternative ideas for a more equal, free and regenerative future.
