HEJYouth consists of young and motivated activists committed to achieving a healthy and toxic-free future. We are based in Canada and Germany. Currently, we have already started to work on topics such as plastic pollution, social awareness, climate change, cosmetics and hygienic products, as well as EDCs and youth activism. At HEJYouth we are ready to reach out to young people and policymakers to make real changes! This is only the beginning! We plan on expanding our work, hosting large international webinars with guest speakers and taking on big and important work. We have some exciting projects lined up for the near future!
