Youth are leading the fight against the tobacco industry worldwide

Global Youth Action on Tobacco (GYAT) started as a collaboration with Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids and Glaxo Smith Kline. Since then, it has become a global movement of young people taking on the tobacco industry. In 2006, young people from all around the world descended on Washington, DC for the World Conference on Tobacco. From there, the basics of the movement began, and it is still strong today. The network shares resources from youth tobacco advocacy programs around the world and keeps the tobacco industry accountable for its actions.
