Yesterday at the UN Climate talks, Young Friends of the Earth Europe took part in a number of actions to highlight that coal can play no role if we seriously want to stop climate change. The actions took place to coincide with the launch of the People's Declaration on Coal, and in response to the failures of governments at the talks to listen to people's concerns, over the demands and pressure of the fossil fuel industry.

Young Friends of the Earth Europe is a grassroots network of young people and youth organisations working collectively for social and environmental justice on a local, national and European level. We organise events and inspire young people to take action on issues ranging from climate change, food and agriculture and education for sustainability – to ensure the voices of young people are heard in Europe and beyond.
