OUR MISSION & VISION
Climate Hope is an online hub and a global community. Our mission is to inspire and empower everyone to take joyful action toward ending the global climate crisis.
We do so by:
Helping people tap into their joy to motivate meaningful and consistent attention and action toward ending the global climate crisis.
Providing resources, connections, and communities to support joyful and sustainable climate action.
Building an online presence for people to share and spread their stories of joyful climate action.
Climate Hope envisions a future in which the people and the planet are thriving in interdependency because the climate crisis has been averted and climate care is woven into the fabric of daily life.
OUR THEORY OF CHANGE
Climate Hope is a project to connect to our joy and hope, and from there, inspire smart, fast, connected action to end and reverse the Global Climate Crisis. According to scientists, we have maybe 5-10 years from 2021 to end and reverse the Climate Crisis before global temperature rise is likely to become irreversible, which makes the Global Climate Crisis one of the most important existential human crises of our time. To succeed, we need smart, fast, connected, inspired action.... and we act smarter and faster when we are hopeful, connected, and joyful.
And so, in October 2020, we started the first Climate Hope project: 100 Days of Dancing to BTS to End the Climate Crisis. We then launched Dancing 4 Climate Justice on April 22, 2021 (Earth Day) with the hope to inspire fans of BTS and other Korean pop groups to use their massive global influence to join the efforts to reverse and end the global climate crisis and to end racism (#btsonclimate).
One year later, on October 31, 2021, on the first day of the COP26 Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, U.K., we launched the second Climate Hope project: 100 Stories of Climate Joy, Hope, and Action. This second project seeks to connect a global community of climate artists, activists and influencers by amplifying stories of joy and hope, connecting those stories to climate action, and showcasing inspired climate action already being taken by masses of people across multiple platforms toward ending the Global Climate Crisis.
