We have a big idea. We know that the planet is in crisis on many levels and that humankind and all of life on earth are in a dangerous spot.


Why wait for others to take action on the climate and protect our planet? We can do it, together!


The Climate Action Challenge is a book launch and challenge to spur 1,000 new or expanded environmental initiatives to take off in 90 days!


That's an audacious goal and we need your help to make it happen! We're recruiting 100 volunteers to join our Challenge Support Team. Help us make a splash, encourage people to register for the challenge and jump-start a climate action movement!
