Be The Future Voice of Climate Action Leaders

The world is in a crisis. A climate crisis. An urgent crisis. However, a crisis we can solve together.


Project VOCAL (Voice Of Climate Action Leaders) aims to empower young people aged 18-35 to lead action for the environment. 


VOCAL is proudly curated by EcoKnights and funded by the Global Environment Facility Small Grants Programme (GEF SGP) assisted through the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).


VOCAL aims to bridge the connection between youths who are eager to create a better world, decision makers of environmental policies and climate action leaders. From different backgrounds we merge to create a sustainable future.
