在瑞士,青年綠人們長期以來主動的組織各種活動,積極向瑞士人宣傳全球暖化的議題。Martin Neukom 解釋了這些行動背後的原因。 瑞士已經明顯感受到全球暖化的衝擊: 冰河正在融化,預計在2050年瑞士只會剩下一條冰河。長期以來冰凍的土地正在解凍,山崩頻傳。而瑞士很可能就快面臨第一次的水資源問題。在十多年前,沒有人相信這些會發生。因此青年綠人們決定以行動宣傳這些問題並推廣可行解決方案。 2005年,青年綠人號召抵制運動休旅車(Sport Utility Vehicle, SUV),並倡議禁止運動休旅車上路。最後,這場活動成功的促使國會提案,限制新車的平均排碳量。 為宣導汽車浪費空間的概念,瑞士綠人們將多達十輛的腳踏車放置於一個停車格中,並且在路上畫上腳踏車的停車格,鼓勵以腳踏車代替汽車。  在蘇黎世(Zurich),每年的九月二十二號,青年綠人們都會組織腳踏車示威活動。這一天正是全球無車日,整整兩個小時,腳踏車可以占據整條蘇黎世的道路。這場盛事每年都有五百人左右參加。  最後,在瑞士的一個城市,索洛圖恩(Solothurn),綠人們裝扮成企鵝和北極熊,抗議氣候問題引起極地冰層融化,...
