We're building a movement of elders to address the environmental, governance and social issues of our time.
WELCOME to a community of thousands of elders who are taking action to create a better world for our grandchildren, future generations, and all life. We are concerned about what we see happening all around us – and, we are doing something about it!
In our workshops and conversations we explore the critical issues that keep us awake at night – climate change, our floundering democracy, social injustices, and the need for a new, regenerative way of living. Then we move into action, putting to good use our talents, time, resources, and decades of life experience.
Elders are 80 million strong in America. We can bring about the changes that are needed – but we’re running out of time. We know that we must act now and act fearlessly before it’s too late.
Join Us – together, we are creating a future that works for all!
Take Action with EAN Today
We are excited to begin this new EAN venture in governance activism: the Elders for Sound Democracy (ESD) action group. ESD is a continuation and expansion of our 2020 Elders Stand for Fair Elections (ESFE) campaign.
We work nationally to affect federal policy, legislation, and regulation to mitigate climate change. We work locally with community organizations and individuals to enact climate ordinances and to lower our individual carbon footprints.
We explore new potentials and practices to revitalize a degraded planet from a regenerative, holistic/systemic view of life in community starting with the individual consciousness along with the societal consciousness. Then into action to rejuvenate the Earth, and ourselves!
We address causes of racial and ethnic injustice, plight of Native Americans, economic inequality, and impact of “white supremacy.” We use gained knowledge to support individual and collaborative social justice projects.
Elder Action Chapters are typically composed of members involved in differing, ongoing social and environmental causes. Chapter members gain support, encouragement and project suggestions through sharing at local chapter meetings.
Elders Climate Action (ECA) chapters take on climate action at both local and state levels, collaborating with like-minded organizations and working to lower our own individual as well as community uses of energy.
