Empowering Young Leaders to Restore the Climate

The Foundation for Climate Restoration is revolutionizing the climate movement by activating the next generation of climate heroes—but we need your help. Your donation will allow us to provide world-class, cutting-edge educational materials to students around the world to ignite their climate action.

As the climate crisis gets worse, young people will be the most impacted by the effects of global warming. And they know it. Teenagers are constantly inundated with bad news about their futures, to the point that many suffer from depression and climate anxiety. Either that or they just tune it out. Who can blame them?

That’s not right. Instead of spreading doom and gloom, why aren’t we teaching future leaders how to take action? To fight to save the climate? THEIR climate?

Well, we’re doing it. The Foundation for Climate Restoration (F4CR) has a plan—one that will create global, game-changing momentum to inspire and empower young people to join the climate movement and work toward real, scalable solutions. F4CR is creating a science-based, standards-aligned climate change high school curriculum for students around the world. For free. Young people will learn about climate change and how they can get involved in restoring the climate.

The purpose of the curriculum, entitled Climate Restoration: Science and Action to Heal Our Planet, is to educate young people about the impact of greenhouse gasses on the climate and empower them to take active roles in solving the crisis.

This six-unit curriculum includes lessons about the science of climate change and the carbon cycle, the politics of climate action, natural and engineered solutions to climate change, and the social justice implications of both climate change and solutions. Teachers and independent learners are currently piloting the first unit of the curriculum.

Collectively, we expect that by promoting the curriculum with our extensive, global volunteer network, organizational partners, informal educational institutions, and teachers’ associations, we will reach 250,000 people in 15 countries within the first year.

We have the power to change how the climate impacts our future—but we can't do it without you. With your generous support, we can complete the development of our vital climate lessons with leading climate scientists and make them available to more and more students around the world. Your donation will go directly towards creating climate content and publicizing the materials for schools.

By donating now, you are helping to create something incredible. As we continue to grow our curriculum, lives will be changed. The possibilities are endless. Please join us on this exciting journey.

Together, we can restore the climate.

The Foundation for Climate Restoration (F4CR) is a registered 501(c)(3) public charity that is building a movement to catalyze the action needed to restore a safe and healthy climate by 2050. Our work centers specifically on education and advocacy around the concept of climate restoration, which focuses on removing historic carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere to restore healthy conditions to our planet. Climate restoration goes beyond traditional climate action, which concentrates exclusively on reducing the amount of carbon currently being emitted, but does not address the nearly trillion tons of excess CO2 already emitted and accumulating in our atmosphere.
