Climate change is real, it’s happening now and to really make an impact we all need to get involved. Most 16-25 year olds want to help but many of them don’t know where to start. That’s why we created the Greenprint 2020. In the first initiative of its kind, Global Action Plan invited its 4500 young volunteers to collaborate to create the Greenprint 2020; a forward thinking vision of an achievable low carbon world, around the topics of Home and Life, Learning and Work, Power, Food and Travel.
Greenprint 2020 projects allow young people to take practical action to work towards achieving their Greenprint 2020 vision. It will ensure that young people are heard by decision makers and have a part to play in the transition to a low carbon world.

Global Action Plan
Global Action Plan is the environment charity that helps people to make practical, positive changes in their workplace, home, school or community. They work with people to make the small changes that have a big impact on the things that matter. Taking action on energy, waste, water and transport has led to measurable results in the UK.
Trewin Restorick, CEO, Global Action Plan said: “The Climate Squad will be a radically different environmental initiative. It will give young people the opportunity to create their own practical initiatives that will drive change in communities and politically. The Climate Squad will alter young peoples’ perception of climate change from feeling overwhelmed by the scale of the challenge to seeing the opportunities that exist for shaping a better low carbon future”.
