As part of Climate Scorecard Report #17 we asked our Country Managers to provide a list of organizations in their countries that might help support our 2020 Campaign. Over the next several months we hope to explore whether the organizations listed below, and others, are interested in supporting the Campaign and implementing the recommendations provided by our Country Managers in Report #16.
China Youth Climate Action Network (CYCAN)
China Youth Climate Action Network (CYCAN) was founded in August 2007 by a group of youth who are interested in climate change and energy transformation. CYCAN is the first non-profit environmental organization in China that focuses on promoting youth’s action to climate change. It promotes youth’s understanding and participation in climate change through climate advocacy, local action, industry exploration and international exchange. CYCAN is influential as more than 500 universities in China have participated in the actions initiated by the organization. Its team consists of board of supervisors, secretariat and professional consultant committee, which allows CYCAN to carry out a wide range of climate action.
