Sackville Youth Climate Change Coalition
Youth Empowering Youth To Fight For Our Future
Sackville Youth Climate Change Coalition is a student-led group fighting for climate action, particularly on a government level. This movement was created in the context of increased climate anxiety, school strikes for climate justice, and increasing evidence that urgent response is necessary (see IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C). While the SYCCC is student-led, it is open to all community members who want to get involved in the fight for our future.
"Solving the climate crisis is the greatest and most complex challenge that Homo sapiens have ever faced. The main solution, however, is so simple that even a small child can understand it. We have to stop our emissions of greenhouse gases.
Either we do that or we don’t.
You say nothing in life is black or white. But that is a lie. A very dangerous lie. Either we prevent 1.5C of warming or we don’t. Either we avoid setting off that irreversible chain reaction beyond human control or we don’t.
Either we choose to go on as a civilisation or we don’t. That is as black or white as it gets. There are no grey areas when it comes to survival."
