Youth For Climate India started two years back in 2020. when Supriya and Rachit who were studying Geography in Delhi University realized how concerning
the issue of climate change is- and how little our governments are doing about it.
Before starting YFC, they attended school strike for climate and noticed an inconsistency in youth climate strikes- and in the process, they met Vijay who's a documentary filmmaker and was documenting climate strikes since they began in India. Three of them discussed the state of youth organising on climate and decided to do something about- and in 2020, three of them started Youth For Climate India with an aim to bring consistency in climate strikes- and strengthen the climate movement.
They started educating and organizing in college campuses through movie screenings, music performances, and open meetings. In past two years, Our team has grown from 3 to 30 and our community has grown to 8000 people out of which 1500+ support our on-ground actions in 30+ cities/towns including Palakkad, Faridabad, Kolkata, Chennai, Pune, Meerut, Manipur, Guwahati, Patna, Naihati, Nagpur, Moradabad, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, Vishakapatnam, Barak Valley, Trivdendrum and Delhi.
