The Jewish Youth Climate Movement Features Panel Discussions and Expands Reach

The Jewish Youth Climate Movement (JYCM), founded by Hazon earlier this year, is running a Chagim Campaign for the fall high holiday season.  JYCM has launched this initiative to expand the reach and impact of the movement to the broader Jewish communal landscape, advancing Jewish environmental education, encouraging individual and community actions, and fostering a broader sense of Jewish responsibility for the environment. They are dedicated to mitigating climate change by empowering teens, mobilizing communities and taking action. JYCM believes in using Jewish Values as a motivation to create a more equitable and sustainable world for all.

 

JYCM will be leading panels and webinars, creating new kvutzot (groups) in schools and communities around the country, writing letters and phone banking, and finding connections between the high holidays and environmentalism for 7th to 12th graders.

To connect with the broader Jewish community, there will be informative webinars and panels: On September 13, a webinar will feature Food and Climate; On September 21, a teen led panel on Climate will take place at 6pm; On September 30, an Environmental Racism panel will start at 7pm.
