Climate Change


Generation One

Together we are Generation One. Turning science and ideas into climate action that will help us create a positive, fair and progressive future. For us and for generations to come. The time is now.

We will not be the last generation – but we will be the last to accept complacency when it comes to the realities of human impacts on earth. Because this isn’t the end of the climate story; it’s the start.

The start of viewing the earth as a fundamental part of ourselves, of acknowledging the climate emergency as something that is part of our own experience.  And it’s the start of changing the fact that those least responsible for the impact on our planet are the ones most impacted by the changes to it.

Together we are the new generation – the generation taking collective responsibility for our future climate. By turning science and ideas into climate action we are working towards a positive, fair and progressive future. For us and for the generations to come.
