What is missing that could break the gridlock on Climate Change?
The unified voice of the Elders!

We are a campaign, a movement of elders committed to making our voices heard...to change our nation’s energy policies while there is still time to avoid catastrophic changes in the Earth’s climate. 

Because of this concern and because we are the largest voting bloc, we elders are in an unique position to influence national policy and can use that power to push for policies that will reduce greenhouse gases to a level consistent with life thriving on our planet. 



In September 2015, we had our first ever Grandparents Climate Action Day in Washington, D.C.  More than 140 elders came together from around the country to learn, share, and ask our representatives and senators to do right by our children, grandchildren and all life.  It was a wonderful awakening for many of us who had been on the sidelines of climate change for too long.  We found a community of like-minded elders who are interested in building a real movement.

Elders Climate Action Day 2016

We are doing it again!  Our Elders Climate Action Day 2017 will be held in Washington D.C. next spring.  While we are in the early planning stage, we invite your input on the kinds of inspiring and relevant programming that will strengthen elders to be a positive force for future generations on climate change.  Please send your thoughts and suggestions to lesliew@eldersclimateaction.org.

We are planning Elders Climate Action Day 2017 and we want to hear from you!  Based on input from some of our members, we have put together a short survey. Please click HERE and tell us what you would like to have on the ECAD 2017 program next spring.
