Who We Are

Dedicated Youth

Earth Guardians is an organization of dedicated youth from around the world that is committed to standing up to protect the Earth, Water, Air and Atmosphere so our generation, and those to follow, inherit a healthy, just and sustainable planet.

We believe that today’s youth have a vital role in addressing our environmental and climate crisis and in creating the kind of world we want, and deserve to live in.

Earth Guardians empower a generation of young environmental and social leaders by providing tools and resources to ensure successful projects as they develop and share their ideas and voices.

Inspired Activists

By connecting with their creative passion they are able to take it into artistic action towards building a global movement of inspired activists creating a sustainable and peaceful world.

We are focusing on weaving together this synergy of individual grassroots youth lead projects around the globe, to create one international, intergenerational movement of Earth Guardians for effective change.

Our central hub in Boulder, Colorado, works on local, national and international issues as well as providing the support system and management team to assist youth around the globe in building successful campaigns for positive change.

For those who find particular passion in environmental leadership, we have partnered with the Hummingbird Living School, in Mora, New Mexico, to provide a land-based leadership camp during the summer that will give youth a unique hands-on opportunity to learn from dynamic and innovative educators and community leaders from around the country.
