Climate Transformation

Climate Transformation is all about helping people face the truth — we’re confronting the breakdown of our climate and it’s terrifying — and use it to change the world. We’re bringing psychology and climate science together to help people transform themselves and their communities by turning climate grief, overwhelm or powerlessness into concrete action.

Research

Our research team is developing policy concepts that will spark the public imagination and provide pathways to restore a safe climate. We’re creating blueprints that transition our economy away from fossil fuels rapidly, while protecting workers and vulnerable communities. We study what is working elsewhere and translate what the science tells us we must achieve into concrete concepts for movement organizers and public leaders.

About Us

Climate Mobilization Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit founded in 2015 working collaboratively with The Climate Mobilization to grow the movement for a just, emergency-speed mobilization to save our planet. No one is stepping up to make the urgent changes required to save us. All of us must take this on. We have to take back our future.

Our Impact

Our work has been pivotal in catalysing the Climate Emergency movement: 

  • Leading to declarations of Climate Emergency in nearly 1,500 towns, cities and countries around the globe. 
  • We’ve pushed the national conversation about climate solutions from gradual, long- range ideas and into emergency-mode. 
  • We’ve helped educate cultural and political leaders to embrace bold, comprehensive, emergency-speed climate action. 
  • Our organizers around the country brought this message to their communities, helping make “Climate Emergency” the Oxford English Dictionary the 2019 word of the year.

Our Team

We are a small team, supported by highly dedicated volunteers. Our passionate staff has diverse expertise in organizing, psychology, policy research and communications. We rely on deep collaboration with our allies across the climate and environmental movement.
