We are challenging adolescents from across the Americas and the Caribbean to combat climate change by doing 1000 Actions for the Climate!  

What are you waiting for? Be part of the change!

We are a fresh set of eyes, a group of young people from different countries around the Americas and the Caribbean who have to decided to challenge our region to combat climate change. We believe that adolescents from the Americas can and should play a leading role in the challenge that was imposed by SDG 13, Climate Action. We’ve dreamed of our futures and know that the only way we will get see those dreams come true is by doing something about climate change, because we know no one else will. We are rebels in action, rebels WITH a cause.
