GND Rising is a movement of young people from every part of the UK. We are millennials and Gen Z – and we are united by the fact that crisis is all we have ever known.
We’ve grown up in a world at the tipping point of climate chaos. We’ve seen austerity rip apart our communities whilst putting up with low paid, zero-hours contracts.
We’ve seen the gap between rich and poor get wider and wider and we’ve seen how all of this is so much worse for people already struggling all over the world. A secure job, decent home and financial security are impossible for most of us.
We know that what we’re fighting for is huge, and that things only change when we rise up together. And we know that everyone has something to lose to the climate crisis and everything to gain by stopping it.
That’s why we know that over 35’s have important roles to play in our movement, and we want to make space to learn from and be supported by people outside of our generation.
We’ll send you ways to take action and get involved through our mailing list – but some opportunities will be aimed at 16-35 year olds as the face and the front line of our movement.
You can also get involved with Green New Deal UK – all-ages network of local hubs taking action across the UK for a Green New Deal. Sign up to the mailing list here!
