“Climate change is THE critical issue that will define the lives of today’s children. In recognition, those born in roughly the last decade and those who will be born in the coming years may be remembered as Generation “C.”
It’s a truism to say that every generation needs their mothers. Of course, our kids deserve to have mothers who look after them, love them, who are there with a smile and a hug and a laugh. But Generation C really needs more.
They need mothers, godmothers, grandmothers, stepmothers, soon-to-be mothers, one-day-in-the-future mothers, and the mother in all of us to understand the very real threats, and take action to reverse climate change. It can be done, but Generation C needs mothers to unite and step into the climate debate in a big way in order to build the critical mass that is necessary.
We all know that the force of a mother’s love can move mountains. Let’s direct this energy to move the world to a better – and more carbon-neutral – place. We hope that this website and our forthcoming book, Generation C: A Mother’s Guide to Climate Change, will help support you in your efforts to stand up for a brighter future for the generations to come.”
