The following are principles that FES staff, colleagues, and affiliates are expected to adhere to. When someone new enters the room, these principles are meant to guide discussions and outcomes.

  1. Youth-led, youth-serving, always (youth is defined as people less than 30 years old).
  2. We’re in a climate crisis and we act like it.
  3. Relationships of trust and mutual respect.
  4. Equity and accessibility.
  5. Responsibility and reciprocity.

FES supports a diverse and broad range of organizations and individuals, all within the mission to empower youth to tackle the climate crisis. We want to work with you and uplift your work, whether you’re grassroots, unregistered, non-profit, Indigenous, and/or community-led we are here to support you. We recognize that to advance solutions for the climate crisis we need pressure on all sides.
