We Rise We Vote
We partnered with numerous organizations to inspire and galvanise young people, in particular millennials, to register to vote. Through our efforts and that of other organizations, including Head Count, ACE, Unifyre, #RockTheVote, and Do Something, the 2018 midterms saw the biggest youth voter turnout in history.
A youth-led lawsuit has helped spark a global movement committed to securing a stable climate and healthy atmosphere for us and our children, and our children’s children. Earth Guardians Youth Director, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, and the Earth Guardians organization are plaintiff’s in this unprecedented federal court case, Juliana vs. U.S.
Testimonials & Success Stories
The ONLY organizational plaintiff in the landmark constitutional climate lawsuit, Juliana v. U.S.
Developed and trained 35 Earth Guardians Campaign Directors across the globe to take action, spread messages, and initiate projects to involve other youth, including:
Led the first entirely youth-led climate march, Zero Hour.
Launched the ‘ExSTRAWdinary Art Exhibition’ which used art to promote the banning of plastic straws worldwide,

Earth Guardians designed a robust, climate-focused curriculum including lesson plans, how-to guides, activities, artwork, videos, posters, and action plans for 20K U.S. teachers to share within their classrooms (reaching 500+K students) in collaboration with Amplifier.
We began development of a cutting-edge, interactive app called "EarthTracks" -- like a FitBit for the Planet -- that will act as an interactive tool to track and measure our individual and collective impact. The app provides simple, day-to-day actions people can take to shift their individual behavior, and provides metrics on how powerful those little actions can be. It will also connect a worldwide network of Earth Guardian crews and millions of individuals to work on global campaigns and calls-to-action together.
Earth Guardians’ additional accomplishments from the past year also include:
Planted more than 100,000 trees across India, Africa, Mexico and the U.S.
Earth Guardians Africa received official recognition by the Togenese government, and grew from 7 to 18 Crews spanning the entire African continent.
Earth Guardians Africa planted 40,000 trees, trained 4,000 youth to become climate activists, and dug several wells in various communities.
By 2020 Africa will be the first continent to have Crew Directors in every country across the continent.
Earth Guardians’ India reached 5,000 youth and 10,000 women through the launch of peace and human rights education campaigns.
Earth Guardians Mexico expanded to 7 different states of the Mexican Republic and spread to Peru as well!
