Have you got what it takes to tackle the climate crisis?

The British Council and Co-operation Ireland are calling for young, inspired people from across the island of Ireland to join our Active Citizens: Social action for climate change programme and take action on the biggest issue facing our planet.

Make your idea become reality

Young people across the world perceive climate change as the biggest global challenge facing our world today.

Through Active Citizens: Social action for climate change, the British Council is giving young people in six European countries and the UK the chance to address this challenge.

Successful applicants in Ireland and Northern Ireland will be able to turn their innovative ideas for sustainability into reality. Through the Active Citizens model and decades of expertise in social change projects within Co-operation Ireland and British Council, you’ll be able to build local and international connections, develop skills and have the exposure to ensure your ideas make a difference.

Be at the heart of an international movement

Active Citizens: Social action for climate change is part of the British Council’s global programme around the COP26 international climate change conference, which takes place in Glasgow in November 2021. The British Council is working with partners across the whole of the UK and worldwide to support the success and legacy of COP26 by creating opportunities for cooperation, dialogue and action that address the shared challenges of climate change.  Active Citizens projects are running in 22 countries (including Ireland and NI) – meaning you’ll be part of a global team of young people with

the passion to take social action on environmental issues and climate change.
