Generation Climate Europe is the first coalition of youth-led NGOs at European level pushing for stronger action from the EU on climate and environmental issues. GCE brings together eight of the largest European youth organisations, representing over 460 national organisations in all Member States and over 20 million young Europeans. GCE’s objectives are firstly, to create a united voice to better advocate for the position of young people in European decision-making processes on climate and environmental issues and secondly, to empower young people to become effective climate advocates.
The circular economy is one of the key thematic areas for GCE, encompassing various issues such as textile waste, digitalisation, energy, chemicals, food and water.
