As the words of Jack Johnson go, "An individual action, multiplied by millions, creates global change."

WE call for this action, and we ask you to help us.

Youth Now is a place to share ideas, be inspired by guest activists on the A list, find links and info on organizations working on social issues, teleconferences on leadership and activist training, high school and college campus doc film screenings.
We are working to organize a global youth movement for sustainable and ethical ecological and economic action and policies with focus on moving away from fossil fuels to renewable energy and green job development. Connecting to create a movement loud enough and powerful enough to shift consciousness and affect political will; calling on youth to act now to transform the planet. Demanding that our leaders of every village, city, state and country adopt a long term view that will protect the public commons and ensure a safe, sustainable, livable future for this and future generations. Acknowledging the interdependence of humans, animals, and nature and honoring diversity, our vision is for unity, justice and a balanced view of ecology.
