Elders Climate Action is building a non-partisan movement of elders committed to making our voices heard.
We are determined to change our nation’s policies while there is still time to avoid catastrophic changes in the earth’s climate.
Because of this concern and because we vote consistently, elders are in a unique position to influence national policy.
We are committed to using our voices, our votes, and our collective power to push for policies that will
reduce greenhouse gases to a level consistent with life thriving on our planet.

Choices for Sustainable Living (CSL) Workshop from our parent organization Elders Action Network

Elders Action Network’s Regenerative, Sustainable Living (RSL) action group is again offering the Northwest Earth Institute’s (NWEI) Choices for Sustainable Living (CSL) Workshop. starting on Monday, September 23rd. Past participants have found great value in this on-line, 8-session course. It presents a broad spectrum of ways and reasons for making personal and community changes as we work to lower our overall energy usage and carbon footprint. It is an excellent complement to the work of ECA members in that it focuses on what we can each do in our personal lives as we work on getting our government to do it’s part.

Register for the EAN workshop here.
