Climate Advocate’s Guidebook

Not every day is a powder day, but if you’re like us, you’ll use those dry days in between to wax your skis and get your gear in order. That way when the resort cams show the powder piling up, you'll be first in line to snag first chair.

Climate advocacy is no different. We may not be weighing in on climate policy or casting critical votes every day, but that doesn’t mean we can’t use those in-between days to make small steps and brush up on our advocacy skills. When that day comes and the need arises, we’ll be ready to spring into action. From responsible banking to imperfect advocacy, the Climate Advocate's Guidebook has all the resources and ideas you need to be an advocate - every day.

Live an Examined Life

It's no secret that here at POW, we are all about using collective action to address the systemic causes of climate change. After all, nearly 70% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from just 100 companies. We believe that to have an outsized impact in reducing emissions we need to address the biggest sources of pollution as well as the status quo that allows those sources to continue polluting. While we are committed to advocating for systemic solutions, we also recognize that when individuals collectively choose to live sustainably, those individual choices can lead to a massively important ripple effect that can inspire policy changes at broad levels. If you're looking to live sustainably, here are some of our favorite ways to lead an examined life.

Tell Your Story

Your voice carries tremendous power; research shows that people connect through values and through shared experience. Bringing together community - over a meal or on the skin track can be a powerful way to act on behalf of a healthy climate. Telling a vivid story of your own connection to climate and knowing what the experts have to say about how to best talk about climate provides a chance for others to relate and join in taking action.
