Our values

Our values are courage and joy! Every newsletter we send and every event we host promotes at least one of those two values. When we say we're a "values-driven community", we don't mean that lightly. For example, when you join our community via our Climate Solutions Cohort, we have an entire session dedicated to practicing courage for climate conversations!

If you feel hopeless, you're not alone.

In a landmark study of 10,000 young people aged 16-25, 84% of respondents were worried about climate change, and over 50% felt “sad, anxious, angry, powerless, helpless, and guilty”.

Taking individual action matters more than you think.

It's easy to feel like our actions don't matter in the grand scheme of things. However, research shows that "every time you successfully take committed action, you increase your hope, optimism, and self-efficacy".

Building self-efficacy is key to collective and systems change.

"Self-efficacy is the belief that you, yourself, can effect positive change in your own life. Together, hope, optimism, and self-efficacy make up the secret sauce of unstoppable motivation and willpower."
