For Our Grandchildren, Future Generations & All Life

Welcome to the home of thousands of elder climate activists, all committed to a non-partisan effort to end the Climate Crisis and build a just and sustainable future for our children, our grandchildren, and all children. Some of us are new to climate activism and some have been working for years, but each of us has faced a personal reckoning and decided that there is no better use of our wisdom and strength, our time and resources, and our anger and good will, than to join in this struggle.  We believe that collective action is the most effective way to force policy changes on the scale and timetable that will be necessary to protect all of us. And we mean all of us, in all our colors, genders, abilities, origins and political persuasions, poor and rich, young and old and, most importantly, our most vulnerable. Climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, structural racism and injustice all are ugly products of a system that values profit and property over life, and we are working  for an equitable reconstruction of all of it. Here are links to ECA’s full policy statement and to ECA statements on justice and anti-racism, and the pandemic.

WE ELDERS….

…REMEMBER A HEALTHIER, LESS DANGEROUS CLIMATE; we will defend this planet against further harm.

…UNDERSTAND THAT TIME IS SHORT; today is the best day for taking an action.

…HAVE HEARD THE VOICES OF THE YOUTH ACTIVISTS when they said “our house is burning;” we believe we are duty-bound to fight for their future.

…BRING UNIQUE POWER TO THIS GLOBAL EFFORT by using our wisdom to transform anxiety into organizing and action. 

…INTEND TO BE AMONG THE ONES WHO GET THIS DONE.  It will be our legacy that our work helped turn the tide toward love, a habitable planet, and justice and equity for all. TODAY, JOIN ECA, TAKE ACTION WITH US AND PLEASE SUPPORT OUR WORK WITH A DONATION
