The Elders Climate Action Local Action Teams is an ECA initiative that assists, connects and supports elders who wish to take practical local action to address climate change. The Team provides resources, tech support, networking opportunities, and mentoring to help activists who are organizing in their communities.

The ECA Local Action Teams are working in collaboration with The Climate Mobilization and Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth to mobilize elders to work in their communities, in collaboration with other activists to compel local municipalities to adopt an emergency response to climate change and the broader ecological crisis.  The Climate Emergency Campaign is global, championed by leading climate groups including Elders Climate Action. The #ClimateEmergency movement has won over 1000 declarations so far, including hundreds of Emergency Declarations by local governments as well as several by States and others in many countries! ECA Local Action Teams were created to help provide elders activists with support, tools, resources and ideas about how to jumpstart a Climate Emergency Declaration in your area.

Make new friends and build climate connections in your area.

Join ECA and Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth (UUMFE) for the Project Drawdown EcoChallenge local/regional teams!  The EcoChallege is focused on reducing carbon in the atmosphere following the guidance of Project Drawdown.   Ecochallenge makes recommendations based on research that maps, measures, models, and describes solutions to global warming that already exist.  Participant teams choose among the recommended actions, complete them,  and track and share their progress using an online platform. When you check off completed actions, your team earns points and you can see the real-time impact of your actions. Joining a ECA/UUMFE Team is a great way to meet and build relationships with other climate activists in your area and may help build a team of folks who want to work together on a climate emergency declaration.  

The combination of collective action, camaraderie, and friendly competition makes pushing for change a little easier — and a lot more fun.
