Earth Uprising is proud to support Fridays for Future USA and the Global Youth Climate Strike on May 24th, 2019!
We are a team of young people who want to save the planet.
Scientists have told us we have less than 12 years to act in order to avoid some of the worst effects of climate change. Our earth system is rapidly changing and the effects to our planet, our ecosystems and to humanity are devastating. Our ice caps are melting. Sea levels are rising. Heat waves and droughts are increasing. Wildfires burn hotter and faster. Extreme rainfall and flooding is increasing. The extinction rate has accelerated to an unprecedented level and nearly 200 species are going extinct everyday. Our planet is dying right before our very eyes.
Us youth will bear the greatest impacts of climate change. Our lives will be very different from the lives of our parents and grandparents. We will be the first generation to witness the devastation the older generations have brought upon our planet.
Youth climate activists from all over the world are uniting to take action and demand a better future for ourselves and future generations. Even though many of us cannot vote, we can make our voices heard! We have started Earth Uprising to support and hasten the youth climate movement. We want action and we want it now. We are impatient and it is our time to lead. Join us.
How we will mobilize the world.
Earth Uprising is partnering with some amazing climate scientists to create a climate science and climate change curriculum. We will teach young people all over the world facts about climate, and how to mobilize themselves and others for climate action.
Earth Uprising’s Youth-Led Climate Action Coalition will bring young people from all over the world together, and help them connect with each other for climate action.
Once we have educated, organized and allied the youth, we will take action! Earth Uprising will mobilize and support youth taking direct action on climate change all over the world.
Earth Uprising acknowledges the best resource youth can have are their adult allies. Adult organizations can join our Adult Allies of the Youth: Climate Action Coalition. Through this unique coalition, youth climate leaders will be able let the adults know how they can help.
