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.

The obvious choice, then, is to extend our notions of self-interest. For example, it would not occur to me to plead with you, “Don’t saw off your leg. That would be an act of violence.” It wouldn’t occur to me (or to you) because your leg is part of your body. Well, so are the trees in the Amazon rain basin. They are our external lungs. We are beginning to realize that the world is our body.
