The Hawai‘i Youth Climate Coalition was founded in February of 2019 under its old name, Hawai‘i Youth Climate Strike for the sole purpose of organizing one protest in solidarity with the Global Climate Strike of March 2019.
Our mission is simple: help shape a just, equitable, and climate resilient future for our communities here in Hawai‘i.
We are a strictly youth-led, community advocacy organization dedicated to fighting for climate justice. In our short existence, we have been at the forefront of change here in Hawai‘i.
At HYCC. we strive to maintain these values as we move forward to make change:
- Climate Change is not a singular issue.
- We do not subscribe to violence as a means of attaining our needs.
- We stand with other movements fighting for equality.
- Collaboration with our community members is the only avenue for change.
