Pledge to be a Climate Leader
This is a critical time in the global climate movement, and now more than ever real leadership must come from us, the people.

We will deliver this pledge signatures to members of Congress at the People's Climate March in D.C. this April.
The pledge is only the first step; our actions will make the real difference.
• I pledge to join or lead actions that will build momentum for lasting climate solutions.

How this pledge started:
Itzcuauhtli is a dedicated Earth Guardian and young Indigenous leader. As he's learned more about climate change over the past few years, Itzcuauhtli and become increasingly concerned with the urgency of the climate crisis and the fate of his generation.
In 2014, when he was 11 years old, Itzcuauhtli decided to take a 45-day vow of silence to inspire youth everywhere to speak up for future generations. As a result, people from all over the world signed the Earth Guardian pledge to be Climate Leaders and wore green wristbands in solidarity. Thousands joined him in a talking strike on December 10, 2014. At COP21 in Paris we delivered thousands of signatures.
