UK Student Climate Network
UKSCN is an organisation led by and for students, who’ve been forced to take direct action to fight for a future that has been stolen as a consequence of the actions of previous generations. Our Mission Statement further details why and how we’re doing this.
UKSCN was set up by a small group of volunteers that were inspired by the powerful and direct protests made by young people against climate inaction across the rest of Europe. In particular, young climate activist Greta Thunberg’s speeches and ideas are central to our mission. This involves radically reforming the role and power of young people in national action against climate change. To achieve this we will employ strong and repeated student-led protest to promote our diverse voices calling for a common aim. With 200 species going extinct every day and water scarcity affecting up to 360 million people, our objectives have never been more relevant.
