Global Justice Now youth network

Global Justice Now’s youth network is a space for young people to come together to share ideas and experiences and take action.  

Across the globe, the rich and powerful have used the economic crisis to strengthen themselves at the expense of the majority. Brexit has empowered the most conservative forces in society. And young people are bearing the brunt, faced with a life of debt, insecure employment and anxiety.

The network has been set up to make sure that youth voices are a part of global movements against corporate power, inequality, climate change and racism. Get involved if you want to help build a world in which people come before profit.
