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 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.

In this action, we seek justice. Justice for the waters. Justice for the four-leggeds and the wingeds, whose habitats have been taken. We seek justice, not just for ourselves, but justice for the whole of Creation.
