Climate Generation: A Will Steger Legacy empowers individuals and their communities to engage in solutions to climate change.
A world of resilient communities with equitable solutions to climate change.
Organizational Policy Goal
Goal of 100% clean energy and 80% greenhouse gas emission reductions by 2050 at the latest.
Climate Generation understands that climate change is a highly complex issue and that just and equitable solutions cannot be found if we proceed with the climate science and policy lens alone. We must take a comprehensive perspective of climate change impacts and solutions if we are to reach our goal and create the future we want to live in. We are committed to addressing the intersection of climate change and economic, social, and racial disparities, and working closely with partners who understand this interface.
Why Climate Generation: A Will Steger Legacy?
Climate change is defining this generation: everyone alive today. This generation has been the first to really experience the effects of climate change and will have the biggest influence on how we address it.
Our Theory of Change
Communities collectively hold the power to innovate and demand climate change solutions. Empowering individuals in their communities to make long-term, lasting change requires building climate literacy, understanding personal connections to climate change, and developing powerful advocates through a model of collaboration and partnership. By engaging educators, youth, and the public, we believe that communities can be better positioned to build a resilient and equitable future.
