Most Americans are worried but inactive about the climate crisis + tend to underestimate the public consensus that already exists on climate. Because the problem exists on a global scale, it is easy to feel powerless about addressing it. While this dynamic has changed dramatically in a hopeful way over the last year, the self-reinforcing cycle of passivity + silence remains largely intact. Taking Action aims to help reverse this cycle by providing guidance + support on specific civic actions we can take together for climate progress. It is staffed largely by high school volunteers inspired to share information about climate solutions, barriers to their implementation + effective civic engagement.
