OUR MANIFESTO

People care
That most people keep flying on vacation despite the fact that we are in the middle of an acute climate crisis is not because they don’t care, it’s because we humans act as those around us. Most people would be prepared to fight to save the climate if they realised how serious the climate crisis is and the importance of their own actions. The great advantage with that we humans like to follow the crowd is that a change can happen fast if enough people start to act.

More people need to become aware of the severity of the climate crisis
We who have realised how serious the situation is must show with our actions what
is required, and we must dare to talk about it with others. It is in everyone's best interest to solve the
climate crisis, and in the future people will otherwise wonder why not those who knew
did something.

We are in an acute emergency
We are in the biggest emergency of humanity and must act accordingly to that. If a third world war had broken out, nobody would worry about what to do during their vacation. Everyone would be prepared to do what it takes to regain peace. If we are to succeed in avoiding a climate collapse, immediate and radical adaptation is required. We demand a climate policy that is based on what the climate can handle- not what we want it to handle.
