Young
Innovators

Climate action for
future generations

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

Every child born in Europe today will need to lead a carbon neutral life by the time they leave school.

Young Innovators is the only initiative in Europe which unites students, schools, cities, governments and brands in igniting climate action.

We work with EIT Climate-KIC partners, learning designers and teachers as multipliers of change, and to bring climate change challenges as part of their studies at school. The programme introduces a systems innovation approach through visual thinking and participatory tools and trains schoolteachers to bring climate innovation into the classroom. We have designed the programme working closely with partners and our community players that are involved in the education curriculum and the training of teachers themselves.
