Young Friends of The Earth NL
Young Friends of the Earth NL is a grassroots network of young people and youth organisations working collectively for social and environmental justice on a local, national and European level.
Young Friends of the Earth NL (or JMA) is the youth organization of Milieudefensie for, and by, young people between the ages of 16 and 28. Since 1991 we have been using a lot of energy, passion and humor for a clean and fair world. For young people in the Netherlands and for young people worldwide.
Climate change is the greatest single challenge that humanity currently faces. In order to bring climate change to a halt some major changes are going to be necessary. We will only be able to accomplish this if everyone participates and is able to participate. Keeping climate change under control will require significant investments of capital. What we are trying to do in the Netherlands is to ensure that the distribution of the costs of the transition between the people and the corporations is more equitable as well as that between the wealthy and those with more modest incomes. The aim of our Fair Future campaigns is the realization of this just transition, and the reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions.
