Urban Climate Action Network (UCAN)


Urban Climate Action Network (UCAN)

The Urban Climate Action Network (UCAN) is a national climate change youth corps that empowers teens concerned about climate change within their communities to take action, connect with peers in other cities to discuss environmental, social, and economic challenges and, ultimately, to create better places to live, work and play.

Selected teams will participate in this 2-year effort to create projects in their community to address some aspect of climate change and its impact. Teams begin by attending the UCAN Conference on July 15-19, 2019 at the National Aquarium, Baltimore, MD. Teams will be supported in their work by professional planners from the American Planning Association.

Teams must include five high-school-aged youth in grades 9 through 12 from within the continental U.S. and be sponsored by a 501(c)3 community organization. Teams will work under the supervision of a dedicated adult leader affiliated with that organization.
