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

Mission Statement

We, the Elders for Climate Justice, recognize the special responsibility of Elders to serve as Earth stewards and to leave a sustainable and healthy planet for those who follow.  Our emphasis will be on specific actions people can take to help in the battle against the escalating dangers of climate change.  We seek to do this by:

  • Conducting videotaped interviews with well-known climate scientists, experts and activists, and making these videos and other information and resources available on our website.
  • Disseminating this information through the multiple communication channels of the ManKind Project (http://mankindproject.org/) and related organizations.
  • Partnering with other climate-related organizations such as Elders Climate Action.
  • Paying special attention to the impacts of climate change on those most harmed by and least able to cope with 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.
