Thinking Globally

Our human ecological footprint has reached a totally unsustainable 1.5 Earths. Our global culture is consuming at unprecedented rates. Our resources are being depleted beyond recovery. These are serious problems that demand action, especially by young adults. We need our own plan to guide our future!

Our Task

Today’s young adults are set to inherit an Earth fraught with climate disruption, resource depletion, rapid population growth, increased economic disparities and failing states. But our young generation doesn’t have to let that future become a reality.

We envision a shift in global civilization in which institutional and individual values are redirected from unsustainable consumption toward a mutually enhancing relationship between humans and Earth. In order to achieve that outcome, young people need a sense of what is happening to the planet and where existing policies are headed. We need a sustainable Earth strategy to lead us all in a new direction, or in other words, speak up for the Earth that we want to inherit. Then, we need to build a movement around this strategy!

Our Task is an independent, non-profit network of young adults, mentors, and other concerned citizens who are very concerned about the future of the Earth. Our Task—our mission—is to empower and mobilize young adults to lead a movement toward a more sustainable future by training them to be informed, effective global leaders. We do this by mobilizing other young adults (late teens to early thirties), by filling in the gaps in their knowledge about what is happening to Earth & what it will mean for us if we continue with “more-of-the-same”, and by advocating for the alternatives that are being proposed -- "Plan Bs".
