WE ARE UNITING TO PROTECT THE KIDS WE LOVE FROM THE CLIMATE CRISIS

Our Kids’ Climate was founded in 2015, by Swedish parent group Vara Barns Klimat to bring the perspective of concerned parents to the Paris Climate Summit.

Since then, we have grown into a dynamic network of 58 parent groups from 23 countries around the world, deploying diverse organizing strategies to push for bold climate action.

We believe parent-led actions can resonate with diverse publics and policymakers, many of whom are parents and grandparents themselves, and can cut across ideological and political boundaries. 

Our Kids’ Climate works to support, amplify, and connect climate-parent leaders and organizations.

WE DEMAND THAT LEADERS MAKE A #CLIMATEPROMISE FOR OUR KIDS

Commit to treating climate change as the global crisis that it is, to work to quickly stabilise global temperatures, and completely decarbonise our economies.

Commit to working towards a rapid and just transition of our societies to clean, renewable energy and increase resilience to climate impacts, ensuring we support those countries, people and groups most vulnerable to the effects of climate change.

Commit to challenging the governments and companies that are clinging to unsustainable business models, making sure they work to secure a thriving future for all humanity.

THE OUR KIDS CLIMATE TEAM

Our Kids’ Climate was co-founded by Frida Berry Eklund, spokesperson from Vara Barns Klimat (Sweden) and Jill Kubit, co-founder of DearTomorrow (US). Both are mothers and believe in the power of the parent voice to drive action on climate.

In 2020, they were joined by Maya Mailer, who provides strategic advice for parent groups on campaigning, and Rebecca Wynn, who leads on communications. Both are members of UK climate group, Mothers’ Rise Up. Please email us us to book a meeting with a member of our team.
