Planet Benefit

Turning awareness into action

Gail may be one of the great leaders of our time. Her own purpose and belief brought about Extinction Rebellion, the global environmental movement that occupied 75 cities across the world in 2019, bringing climate action to the forefront of every person’s consciousness. We laud her use of non-violent civil disobedience to compel government action to avoid tipping points in the climate system, biodiversity loss, and the risk of social and ecological collapse. There’s lots more to come…. 

Gail took a lot of personal risk to help build this movement (as have others). She is overcoming her own fears to look beyond her own comfort and to do what these times require of us, with love and humility.  

What bigger cause is there than to save our planet? Not all heroes wear capes!
