“If you look at the science that describes what is happening on earth today and aren’t pessimistic, you don’t have the correct data. If you meet people in this unnamed movement and aren’t optimistic, you haven’t got a heart.” (Paul Hawken)
‘It’s up 2 us’ is an opportunity to mobilise our hearts and hands to not only work to address climate change and prevent it’s worse effects, but in the process create a more sustainable, fulfilling and just world. Rather than being accountable to what’s popular, corporations or Governments we’re using the crowd funding model to create a project on behalf of, and accountable to our community and future generations.
Since the 1st of November 2013 Jaime Yallup Farrant (in partnership with individuals and organisations already working to address climate change) has been providing activities to inspire and motivate behaviour change amongst civil society, organisations and corporations.
The ‘It’s up 2 us’ campaign aims to build a movement of people willing to take personal and collective responsibility to protect our children and future generations from dangerous climate change and environmental degradation, whilst bringing forth a sustainable, just and fulfilling world.
Jaime is now employed through the Climate Justice Union to continue this work, however in partnership with others Jaime is working to raise funds to support grass roots organisers to continue the work for climate justice in WA.
