Welcome to the Elders for Climate Justice website.  We are Elders for Climate Justice, dedicated to creating conversations about climate change, and urgently encouraging action.

Mission

Seeking a just and sustainable world, we Elders for Climate Justice work to actively address the accelerating climate crisis that threatens us, our children, those who will follow, and all other life on our beloved planet.

Goals

  • To heighten awareness about the urgency of the climate crisis, engaging with and inspiring people to take positive actions to mitigate the destruction of our biosphere, and to preserve the viability, beauty, and biodiversity for future generations.
  • To support the youth and others, particularly the most vulnerable, on the frontline of the battle to curb the climate crisis.
  • To share our accumulated wisdom to leave our planet a more sustainable and just place than we currently find it.

It's funny. When we were alive we spent much of our time staring up at the cosmos and wondering what was out there. We were obsessed with the moon and whether we could one day visit it. The day we finally walked on it was celebrated worldwide as perhaps man's greatest achievement. But it was while we were there, gathering rocks from the moon's desolate landscape, that we looked up and caught a glimpse of just how incredible our own planet was. Its singular astonishing beauty. We called her Mother Earth. Because she gave birth to us, and then we sucked her dry.
