About us

Our world is in crisis: climate breakdown, corporations too powerful to hold to account and democracies teetering on the brink.

 It doesn’t have to be this way.

Our goal is a more sustainable, just and equal planet. We want climate-critical forests and biodiversity to thrive and fossil fuels to stay in the ground. We want corporations to respect the planet and human rights, governments to protect and listen to their citizens, and the online world to be free from misinformation and hate.
