Youth Resilience in a Changing Climate

The Foundation was an early identifier of the climate-related mental health crisis that young people around the world are experiencing. The Foundation’s Youth Resilience grantmaking aims to support the mental and emotional resilience of young people in the context of the climate emergency by developing effective techniques to help young people build skills to transform their distress into knowledge and action and by educating and training their adults to help mitigate, support, and inoculate young people against climate trauma and anxiety.
