We understand: The Prognosis for the Earth's life-support system and humanity's future is not a good one

We acknowledge: Many efforts have been made at all levels to change the path the Earth's life-support system and humanity are on

We realize: These efforts made have not brought us closer to a healing of the Earth's life-support system or a desireable future for humanity


We pledge to: Unite and engage in urgent actions and longterm transformation to ensure Earth remains a place for us, the human race and all other life.

We will address the immediate urgency through: A number of actions focusing on keeping our planet as closed as possible to a safe operating space for humanity.

To bring us out of the emergency, we will: Aim for a global agreement on the future we want for our planet and humanity and develop pathways to that future.
