Chrysalis Youth Fund

Supporting young leaders and youth groups to mobilise for the environment

Did you know that over half of the global population is under 30, and 87% of young people live in the ‘Global South’? But only a fraction of global philanthropy goes towards youth-led organisations working on environmental issues. More often than not, young people are absent from environmental decision-making processes and frameworks. And even where they do have a voice, they can struggle to access long-term financial support to ensure that their voice continues to be heard.

The Chrysalis Youth Fund wants to change this.
