Elders in Action for Climate



Elder Climate Action is a group of "activists committed to a non-partisan effort to end the Climate Crisis and build a just and sustainable future for our children, our grandchildren, and all children."


March 26, 2024, at 4 p.m. PDT - Elders Climate Action is having their Monthly National Call (on the 4th Tuesday of the month) with Dr. Elizabeth Sawin on the topic: Multisolving: Actions That Protect the Climate While Improving Health, Equity, and Biodiversity at the Same Time. Register here.


The Monthly National Call will be followed by a quick Action Party with the Climate Action Now app. They will provide us with several quick actions related to the Monthly Call that we can take from our phone. Their goal is 100 actions in 15 minutes, last month they did almost 150 actions!


"Dr. Elizabeth Sawin is Founder and Director of the Multisolving Institute, a think-do tank that helps people implement win-win-win solutions that protect the climate while improving, equity, health, biodiversity, economic vitality, and well-being. She is a biologist with a PhD from MIT who has been analyzing complex systems related to climate change for over twenty-five years."


Elders Climate Action (ECA) is a project of Elders Action Network, a 501(c)3 organization. ECA is non-partisan and does not support, endorse, or advocate for any political party or candidate. They "work to inform, inspire, and engage others to take action on the climate crisis. We actively support the youth movements springing up in the United States and throughout the world."



A new ECA Chapter is currently forming in Oregon. Currently, they are a group of six volunteers with facilitators in Lane and Multnomah Counties "who seek to engage more members locally and in other counties." Find out more on their Facebook page.


 

Also March 26, 2024, at 10 a.m. PDT - Third Act is hosting Eldering Series: Creating Possibiities for Our Collective Future - an unscripted, cross-generational conversation on the roles younger and older activists are playing in our shared work, and what we can be learning from each other." Register here.


This session is "hosted by Third Act’s Lead Advisor, Akaya Windwood and will feature: Tamara Chao (Vice President of strategy & Impact at Women Donors Network), Michael Johnson (President at IllumiNative), and Bill McKibben (author, educator, and Founder of Third Act & 350.org)."


Third Act is "a community of Americans over sixty determined to change the world for the better. Third Act harnesses an unparalleled generational power to safeguard our climate and democracy."
