With the significant uptick of climate change content across the cultural zeitgeist, people, particularly the next generation, are increasingly interested and motivated to learn more about climate issues and how they can help. Studies found that younger adults are more likely to engage with climate change content on social media, and 84% of people ages 16 to 25 are moderately worried about climate change. The TikTok community includes this generation facing the most urgent environmental challenges and most impacted by climate change - and driven to play a more active role in raising awareness and driving action around sustainability.

Climate awareness and activism are thriving on TikTok

TikTok has emerged as a destination for conversations focused on the most urgent environment and sustainability issues, with an active and engaged community of creators committed to raising awareness, inspiring action, and restoring the planet. We're thrilled to see the creativity and impact being achieved by the TikTok community: creators and organizations such as Cardishoprite_, Ms_yudee, Campusmama and Crtve Development are taking their communities along with them to make a difference by sharing innovative ways and ways to reduce waste by cleaning up our environments and recycling- in an effort to limit animal consumption of plastics.

At TikTok, we are committed to transforming climate anxiety into empowerment, helping our community and the next generation be informed and engaged. By providing access to credible climate information, elevating voices of climate advocates, experts and organizations dedicated to raising climate awareness and literacy along with collaborating with communities and partners who share the same vision around the world, we want to inspire hopeful dialogue and real action for a more sustainable future.
