Climate Generation thrives based on the efforts of our talented staff, who are passionate about education and youth leadership, and believe in the critical importance of developing solutions to climate change. We have ten employees and several independent contractors and interns. Team members share: why do you do this work?
I believe climate change is the most urgent issue today and I cannot think of any other issue I would rather work on since it affects everything and everyone.
Climate change will define my children’s future.

We must bring together young people, educators, the public, and decision makers to learn about and prepare to tackle the issue of our generation.
Education leads to understanding. Understanding leads to action. Action leads to change.

Information alone is not enough to sway people to change behavior, we need to strip away the layers that divide us and find our shared values.

I believe our climate solutions must be led by those who are most affected and by future generations to reimagine how we live sustainably on this planet.
I believe making smarter environmental decisions begins with education.
Senior Programs Coordinator
Educating results in understanding, and knowledge is a powerful tool to create change.
Sharing the stories of how climate change affects us all leads to understanding, action, and change!
