The 2024 Call for Solutions, launched by Y4C and its partners, aims to empower young people in driving transformative climate action.

Y4C and its partners have launched the 2024 Call for Solutions!

Young people are increasingly acknowledged as vital contributors to transformative climate action, playing roles such as negotiators, innovators, inventors, entrepreneurs, and agents of change. However, they face a significant shortfall in essential technical, financial, and political resources and support needed to fulfill their aspirations.

In response, the Government of Italy and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in collaboration with a range of knowledge partners and youth constituencies, have set out to identify, support and scale youth-led climate breakthroughs through the global Youth4Climate initiative.

Structured as an innovation challenge, this second edition of the Y4C Call for Solutions aims to support the work of young people and youth-led organisations in five thematic areas: Climate and Environment Literacy, Sustainable Energy, Food and Agriculture, Nature Assets, Sustainable Consumption and Production.

Successful applicants will be awarded:

  • Up to US$ 30,000 to implement or scale the proposed innovations.
  • The possibility to access technical support to strengthen their capacity on specific topics.
  • The support from a mentor to develop their proposal.
  • Storytelling opportunities during next events of the Youth4Climate initiative and through the Youth4Climate Platform and Website of UNDP and its partners.

Proposals, if successful, can be implemented over a maximum of 24 months. Proposals can be submitted in English, French or Spanish.

Successful applicants stand to receive funding of up to US$30,000, along with technical support, mentorship, and storytelling opportunities.
