Welcome to Youth fit for 55 platform, a European initiative developed by a network of dedicated organizations, aiming to engage young people across Europe in the green transition and to inspire them to contribute meaningfully to a sustainable future.
Our journey is anchored in the European Green Deal's "Fit for 55" package, an ambitious roadmap which reveals the collective effort needed to reach our objective of 55% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. Given the high stakes of the green transition, "fit for 55" is more than just a rationale for supporting or complementary endeavours. It is an invitation to act, which this project is taking on, addressing the area of youth participation and cooperation.
Therefore, our mission is to raise awareness about the scale and complexity of the challenges and opportunities ahead, shed light on the path towards solutions, while equipping young people with the knowledge, skills and mindset needed to become effective advocates and change-makers in their own communities. We offer high quality resources and learning programs, opportunities to exchange good practices and facilitate dialogue among stakeholders, preparing the next generation of leaders in sustainability. Youth-serving organizations will be an important agency for boosting inclusiveness and influencing change, generally through consolidating knowledge repositories, including guidelines, through dissemination, training, representation, and participation, and by the inspiring energy of exchanges, volunteering, and empowerment.
This is our commitment for a sustainable future, and we want you to be part of this journey. Together we can make the climate neutrality objective a living, breathing reality.
