About

The Climate Mobilization

Building a new movement of people across the United States to reclaim our future by initiating an emergency-speed, whole-society Climate Mobilization, reversing global warming and restoring a safe climate.

The Climate Emergency presents us with unprecedented challenges. We launch aggressive policy frameworks, messaging, and organizing approaches to accelerate the global transition into “Emergency Mode” on climate.

Catalyzed the Climate Emergency Movement 

Climate Emergency organizing has swept the planet because people demand their governments tell the truth — a core principle of our work. By sparking this campaign and fostering it in the United States, we have created a paradigm shift in the understanding of the climate disaster as evidenced by“Climate Emergency” being named the 2019 Oxford Dictionary Word of the Year

Fundamentally changed climate politics

Our work has directly inspired the efforts and demands of groups including Extinction Rebellion, the Youth Climate Strikes, and the Sunrise Movement, and has influenced the new wave of assertive policy proposals aimed at addressing the climate emergency, such as the Green New Deal.

We are committed to

Our Approach

We are guided by the truth and we live in emergency mode. The Climate Emergency is our top priority, as it represents a grave threat to all life.

We believe that the truth, even a painful truth, is powerfully transformational. We speak truth to power, inside and outside the climate movement.

Throughout our work, we focus on what is actually necessary to restore a safe climate, and not what has been deemed politically “possible” by mainstream experts. We only advocate for solutions that will actually protect humanity and the natural world.

Our vision for mobilization includes a strong commitment to democracy, equity, inclusion, and building a regenerative society, centered around caring for each other and all life.

 We rely on deep collaboration with our allies across the climate and environmental movement and are willing to work with anyone who shares our outlook. Together, we must form a united Climate Emergency Movement to protect humanity.

Standing for Mobilization

Our Origins

When The Climate Mobilization was founded at the People’s Climate March in 2014, there was no climate group publicly organizing around the need for a whole-society, emergency-speed mobilization to zero emissions. 

Over the past 6 years, we have succeeded in fundamentally transforming climate politics, including leading the climate movement into “emergency mode,” drastically raising its honesty, expectations and enthusiasm.

The fact that we have warmed the world to this extent, and show little sign of stopping, is evidence of widespread institutional failure.
