Energy Action Coalition
Energy Action Coalition includes more than 40 youth and student organizations from the US and Canada to help support and strengthen the clean energy and climate movements in North America. It is formally allied with 350.org.

The Coalition was formed in June 2004 when local and national groups came together concerned about our addiction to fossil fuels. The Coalition was a "way to increase coordination for national and international actions and to strengthen the growing climate movement. The coalition's founding meeting was held in Washington, DC and included representatives from almost twenty groups. Attendees quickly reached a consensus on forming an American and Canadian coalition with unified messaging and coordinated actions."
In January 2005, a second meeting was held which included Energy Action partners and students from Canada and the U.S.
