THE TRIAL OF THE CENTURY begins Monday October 29 as young people challenge the federal government to deliver Climate Recovery. In a David-and-Goliath confrontation, 21 young citizens argue today’s government policies actively deprive their generation of life, liberty, and property, now and tomorrow. With the help of leading experts, they will demonstrate that a court-supervised Climate Recovery Plan is their only path to justice.
Wow, what an amazing time to be alive and part of a family!
Did you know that today families working together have a real chance to save all the things we love and make the world better? Our top scientists have mapped out a climate recovery path back to a cooler, stable planet for children and the next seven generations. Success depends on cutting emissions 10% a year or more, and planting a crazy big amount of trees.
Kids around the world are already working on the plan today! Thanks to these kids, Climate Change For Families got organized to help, so you can make a difference too. Check out our blog or watch our video playlist below.

Make Climate Change For Families your resource to get your family involved and take action in the most important time for caring for our common home: Now!
Find family-friendly events on the calendar, climate actions, great articles on our blog about kids and families changing the world, and learn what we can do together to change climate change. Get informed to become a powerful advocate for meaningful policy and goals to protect the world. How can we help you get organized?
Start the conversation with your family about how we make a difference. Calculate and lower our carbon footprints, influence other people to join us, and build support for new laws for a clean living culture. Human industry is now the cause and the solution to our crisis. When we change our habits as a group, we change the world:
- FOOD (& agriculture)
Once we learn to do these things in a sustainable way, we make life awesome for the next seven generations. The gift is that we get to re-invent the world today better than the one we were born into, more fairness for all people, all animals, all plants and trees will make us better people.
We help kids organize Plant-for-the-Planet in the USA, an international children’s initiative planting 1,000 billion trees, leaving fossil fuels in the ground, and fighting poverty with climate justice. Cutting pollution 6% each year and planting 1 TRILLION trees will absorb enough carbon to cool the planet for our kids and return to 350 parts per million CO2 near the end of this century. Stopping pollution alone will not cool the planet for centuries. But with 1 TRILLION new trees absorbing 100 Giggatons of CO2, we can cool the planet like it was in the 1980’s by 2070.
You can donate trees here for $1 per tree. We donate through groups like Earth Day Network, Plant-for-the-Planet US, and others doing massive reforestation projects worldwide.
“We are the first generation to feel the effect of climate change and the last generation who can do something about it.” President Obama
