Over the last months, youth has been extremely vocal about climate change and its devastating consequences for the planet and for humankind. Youth is making their voice heard, and they have asked governments, companies and all of us to take action.

All over the world, we have been witnessing a considerable number of spontaneous and peaceful manifestations aiming at promoting urgent climate actions and bringing awareness to the implications of passivity. These have been organized and carried out by youth through social media in a display of the next generation's concerns and ambitions.

Particularly influenced by Greta Thunberg and her message, young people across the globe have been participating in the 'Fridays for Future' public demonstrations, coming together in different cities but sharing the same motivations. During these gatherings, they have been spotted with banners and signs asking society "why go to school if there is no future?"

The EU wants to show its support to youth, as we share their concern regarding climate change and value their efforts in bringing awareness to such a worrying and pressing issue. Earth's future depends on our engagement, and so does life as we know it. Hence, we would like to join forces and promote more ambitious climate action, not only inside the EU but also worldwide, through our Delegations and embassies.
