The Elders for Regenerative Living (ERL) Action Group addresses the broad question:
How do we Elders think, live and act more regeneratively to support our earth NOW, and do our best so future generations will have an habitable planet and a society that support their growth as human beings? What commitments can we make to live in ways that respect the Earth?
ERL currently offers these opportunities to support that transformation:
Take the Pledge
Become a “Good Ancestor”– caring about our planet, youth, and the legacy we are leaving for future generations – as part of EAN’s new campaign to raise awareness about climate disruption and inspire changes in our lives. We’ll be supported to reduce consumption in major areas of our lives – our clothing, food, transportation, and e-waste, during the month of May.
Every choice that we make contributes to humanity’s combined footprint – what we buy, how much electricity we consume, what we eat. They all make a difference.
Elders Action Network is launching Take the Pledge, an educational and action-packed campaign to raise awareness about climate change and inspire people to make changes in their lives. Elders, their families, friends, and neighbors will be encouraged and supported to reduce consumption in in the major areas of—clothing, food, transportation, and e-waste—during the month of May.
The goal is to help participants realize that the decisions we make in our daily lives contribute to humanity’s combined carbon footprint. What products we purchase, how much electricity we consume, the ways we get around, and what we eat or don’t make a difference.
There will be many opportunities to contribute to collective actions that build community and improve our resilience in the face of an uncertain future. Simplifying life can be creative, meaningful, and fun! Join us as we become good ancestors who care about our planet, youth, and the legacy we leave for future generations.
Our Take the Pledge campaign will offer many collective actions that build community and improve our resilience in the face of an uncertain future. Simplifying our lives can be creative, meaningful, and fun! Learn more HERE.
Join a Community of Regenerative Elders
Do you want to continue growing personally while contributing as an elder to the regeneration of your community and society? The Regenerative Elder Process (REP) Introductory Learning Module offers you an initial step in exploring what it means to be part of a community of elders engaged in longer-term transformative actions that contribute to heal society and planet.
The first part of the Introductory Module is a two-to-three-hour self-paced program designed to offer opportunities to learn and reflect on regenerative concepts, new ways of thinking, and intentional ways to approach life. You will have access to a series of texts and videos that explore different facets of elderhood and regeneration, in the context of the challenges we face as a society. When you complete this part of the module, you may find yourself asking “how can I be and act in my elder years in ways that can make a difference both in my personal life and in my community?”
You will then be invited to a two-hour Zoom meeting, scheduled for April 14 at 11:30 am PT / 2:30 pm ET, to meet the other participants – who have also completed the self-study material – and the facilitators of the Module. You will have an opportunity to share with others your thoughts, reactions, hopes, and aspirations. You will also be able to ask questions from the facilitators – including on the Embodying Regenerative Worldviews Module that will be offered in May and June.
This Introductory Learning Module sets the stage for further learning. Upon completion you will be encouraged to step back and assess where you are in your own process and whether you want to engage more deeply with others over a longer time to build a safe, supportive, and stimulating community. and engage in regenerative practices.
Where do I begin?
