As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to affect the world, it has hit hard on climate initiatives by young people. Large peaceful demonstrations and change projects that put the climate issue in a global spotlight, have suddenly become impossible. This creates a need for increased local conditions for environmental and climate involvement, while providing opportunities to collaborate digitally in a young international influence network. This project ensures that young people have more equal conditions to be able to influence one of the most crucial future issues of our time.
Planet One is an initiative to support
the growing global youth movement for climate justice. The initiative is based on the makerspace culture’s philosophy of creating common physical places and providing tools for learning-by-doing. The offer consists of drop-in, a bookable space, a learning program and youth-driven projects.
Planet One is a collaborative project between Fryshuset and Greenpeace, two organizations with long experience and strengths in meeting, engaging and building platforms for young people to carry out advocacy work. The project is aimed at young people between 15- 25 years old, but all ages are welcome!
Fryshuset Foundation is a global non-profit organization that works to achieve societal change and positive development for all young people. Fryshuset provides opportunities for young people to discover their passion, develop their innate abilities and help them realize their full potential, and for society to hear and take their voices into account.
Greenpeace is a non-governmental international environmental organization that uses non-violent creative action to pave the way towards a greener, more peaceful world, and to confront the systems that threaten our environment.
