We All Need Food and Water logo with tagline community + solutions = joy

The clock is ticking. What we do in the next decade is critical. Stories unite diverse groups around a common goal to achieve seemingly impossible tasks. From building ancient temples to combatting COVID-19, humanity repeatedly demonstrates that we can pull together when there is something to unite around. Now is the time to unite around halting climate change. We have the solutions. We just need to get people on the same page in taking action.

The time to create the future we want is now.

One story at a time, our programs are reshaping unhelpful, paralyzing narratives into solution-based stories and adventures rooted in equity and kindness.

Climate change is already destabilizing our world. In Minnesota, we are seeing extreme heat, heavy downpours, and flooding that affect infrastructure, health, agriculture, forestry, transportation, air and water quality, and more. We are all in the greatest race against climate-warming emissions whether or not we signed up to be.

The good news is that the worst effects of climate change can still be avoided. We All Need Food and Water acknowledges that we are in the greatest race of all time AND that doing anything but running our fastest is chickening out! Now is the time to go the extra mile and give it our all, not sink into despair and apathy tuning out the climate crisis believing we’re doomed and it’s too late.

“History has shown that when approximately 3.5 percent of the population participates in nonviolent protest, success becomes inevitable. No nonviolent protest has ever failed to achieve its aims once it reached that threshold of participation. In the UK, this would be 2.3 million people. In the United States, 11 million.”

Audiences Want Climate Stories

“Stories matter. They hold the power to make people feel seen, help communities connect issues and take action, broaden our intersectional lens, and lead us to the solutions we’ve been searching for. Whether you want to invest in the amplification of a story or share your own, you play a critical role in creating ripples of connection, understanding, empathetic awareness, and accountability across the world through each and every story you support and share.”
