THE CLIMATE RUN

The Global Youth Climate Network invites you to take part in a 5K or 15K charity run for climate!

Join the GYCN Team as we run the 'Jingle All the Way 5K and 15K', alongside thousands of others!

Burn off that extra 'insulation' you picked up over thanksgiving while meeting others who are passionate about climate change and the world we live in!


GYCN Prizes will be awarded for:
- The participants who raise the most money for a climate-related charity
- The top GYCN male race time in the 5K
- The top GYCN male race time in the 15K
- The top GYCN female race time in the 5K
- The top GYCN female race time in the 15K

In addition, the Jingle All the Way event organizers award prizes for the top race times in each category, and for the best dressed individual, couple, and team. While GYCN members are encouraged to wear their GYCN Team T-shirt for the race, if you want to get creative then please feel free to get yourself a polar bear costume or a climate change related costume!


Participants are encouraged to raise additional funds for climate related charities. You can start a fundraising page to share with colleagues, friends and family using GoFundMe. Charities focused on climate include:
- 350.org
- Union of Concerned Scientists
- Renewable Energy Foundation
- Environmental Defense Fund
- Sierra Club Foundation
- The Nature Conservancy


Can't (or won't) run, but still interested in being involved? Let us know - volunteers are needed!


The Happy Hour for Climate

Please find more details: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/happy-hour-for-climate-tickets-39223792419

The Global Youth Climate Network (GYCN), an initiative of Y2Y, presents the Happy Hour for Climate.

1 ticket purchased = 1 tote bag + 5 trees planted*

Last entry is 8pm.

Are you a Young Professional concerned about climate change, but lacking the opportunity to implement tangible change in the area? We feel the same way, so we have created the Global Youth Climate Network (GYCN) to fight climate change together.

OUR AGENDA:

  • Select Global GYCN Climate Ambassadors from each and every country around the world
  • Launch our Climate-Smart Entrepreneurship Competition, to encourage young people not reached through traditional channels to share their ideas to mitigate climate change
  • Select and sponsor GYCN members to attend climate summits and climate advocacy trainings
  • Hold fundraisers for climate-related charities, including the Climate Run 5K/15K charity run on December 10
  • Build a network with other NGOs working in the climate field around the world

* Trees planted in your choice of Brazil, China or the U.S. throught the Nature Conservancy's Plant a Billion Trees Program.
