Knights of the Climate Covenant is a nonprofit organization of activists dedicated to increasing involvement in nonviolent actions that help address the climate crisis. Knights in seven nations and 19 U.S. states (so far) are advocates who are committed to making a difference in the fight against global warming and resulting climate crisis, thereby ensuring a viable future for ourselves, our children and our grandchildren.
People around our Round Table range from hardcore, badass marchers and protesters to grandmothers who carry their own containers to the local deli. Each of us is doing whatever we can, wherever we can and whenever we can to slow climate change, counter climate-change denial and call outgreenwashing.
We Can All Be Climate Knights!
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, fight climate-change denial and counter greenwashing.
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.
Anyone can be a Knight of the Climate Covenant and we need as many Knights as possible. The need is critical. Time is of the essence.
Knights of the Climate Covenant launched on Earth Day 2021 to allow more everyday people to identify as climate activists and commit to making a difference in the fight against the climate climate crisis. Regardless of whether it’s changing personal behaviors, helping others change theirs, advocating for climate action or holding elected officials accountable, and no matter how substantive or seemingly insignificant our activities, we are all Knights of the Climate Covenant.

We are so committed to our purposes that we’ve each signed up and signed on to The Climate Covenant, which is the people’s promise to protect our planet, human beings and all of Earth’s other species. It costs nothing to take the pledge and there are no other costs or obligations.
