Most of us are already fighting climate change in some way and on some level. That makes us all climate activists, and we can identify as such. Sometimes, though, it takes an invitation to get people to claim the title. Meanwhile, it’s human nature to like and identify with others who feel the same way.
These are the simple ideas behind the Knights of the Climate Covenant, a nonprofit on a mission to increase the number of people in the world who take nonviolent personal, community and political actions to address global warming and resulting climate change.
Being knighted serves as an easy entry into the climate activism fold for people who are concerned but have not been given “permission” to think of ourselves as activists, even though we’re probably already doing the little things that can help curb global warming and likely will do more once we’re engaged.
We need as many Knights as possible. The need is critical. Time is of the essence.
This is your invitation.
Take the Pledge. Save the Planet.
There’s something powerful about making a promise in writing and putting your signature to it. The act makes the promise more concrete, more real, which means we’re more likely to think about it when making decisions and, ultimately, more likely to keep the promise. It helps us consistently maintain our integrity, if not for others then at least for ourselves. That’s what The Climate Covenant is all about. Download and sign it today!
