ISEC is an international network of 30 countries that provides resources and organizational power to help students anywhere in the world engage in the grassroots movement of climate justice. Our main goals are:
To unite students to act against climate change globally.
To mobilize environmental youth activists to tackle the misconception that climate change is bigger than any one person.
To challenge the popular belief that sustainability can be achieved solely through governmental action.
To foster holistic support for individual projects that aim to change the future from a bleak one to a sustainable one.
The International Student Environmental Coalition is led by the Board of Directors. The governing body is split into the International Board, responsible for international affairs and representation, and the National Board, with national directors taking care of issues in their respective countries. We operate under the Jemez Principles.
Furthermore, project managers are also represented in the Board of Directors. Find out more under Projects.
Founding members: Rebecca Suss, Kayla Soren, Julia Karitas Helgadottir, Martina Orlea, Bettina Maurer, Samuel Nichols, and Anna Hinge.
The National Directors lead the ISEC team and conduct national actions within their respective countries.
