The Give Youth a Chance Campaign aims to mobilize large scale global philanthropy investment (100 Mio US$) for the empowerment of youth led climate action.
The campaign aims to raise awareness of the need for investments into enhanced non-state actors climate action and calls for large scale investments for youth climate action from philanthropists
(signatories of the Giving Pledge), public and private institutional wealth holders, social impact investors in combination with small donations from ordinary global citizens.

II) Learning Opportunities
Enhancing well resourced climate change education, communication and outreach activities.
III) Income Opportunities
