Generation One is here. Will you join us?
As Generation One we are tackling the big climate questions of today and tomorrow. In the lead up to COP26 and beyond, we'll be sharing the answers to 26 of these questions.
We'll be providing the science behind the actions that we, our communities and our governments can take for a positive future.
Pledge your action from one of the questions above.
- Why Generation One?
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.
