Regenerative Solutions for the Living Earth Community
“You have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world. And you have to do it all the time.” -Angela Davis
Featured Action Organizations
- Arava Institute for Environmental Studies: Since 1996, AIES has brought together nearly 1,800 Palestinian, Jordanian, Israeli, and international students. AIES educates future leaders who can meet the Middle East’s environmental challenges with innovative peace-building solutions and ensure a sustainable future for the region. With on-the-ground projects, cutting-edge research, and a university-accredited academic program, AIES works to protect fragile shared environmental resources, eliminate conflict over these scarce natural resources and serve as a model for constructive peacemaking for wider areas of conflict.
- EcoPeace Middle East: EcoPeace Middle East is a unique organization that brings together Jordanian, Palestinian and Israeli environmentalists. Their primary objective is the promotion of cooperative efforts to protect their shared environmental heritage. In so doing, they seek to advance both sustainable regional development and the creation of necessary conditions for lasting peace in their region. EcoPeace has offices in Amman, Ramallah, and Tel-Aviv.
- RISE2030: RISE2030 is a community-led initiative, based in Beirut that focuses on empowering women and youth, with the aim of improving living conditions in Lebanon’s most deprived areas through education, employment and empowerment. They launched the first all-women solar team in Lebanon to challenge the gender stereotypes in the male-dominated construction sector. Thirteen female trainees installed an on-grid solar photovoltaic system at a waste sorting and material recovery facility that would cover 100% of the facility’s daily need for power and later a second team installed a solar tree in the public garden. The management team leading this project was composed of mostly women, with a total of 147 women involved and benefiting from the activity. The project also helped female-led small businesses prepare and sell their rural processed food through the women’s association of the town. The project was hailed as a national success, as the first all-women team in solar energy in Lebanon.
Featured Calls to Action
- Learn about how the ocean will play a vital role in solving the climate crisis and advocate for these solutions in your community.
- Check out WECAN’s action steps for governments and financial institutions which outlines concrete steps to take for achieving the collective goal of a healthy and just planet for current and future generations. Pass this information onto the relevant organizations and offices in your life.
- Featured Nexus action: Learn about the benefits of integrating animals into farm operations. For centuries, traditional and Indigenous societies have understood the close relationships between crops and animals, including fowl and fish. Today, these regenerative relationships are core to modern agroecology (see Agroecology Nexus). For example, tree crops, pastures, and livestock can be combined ecologically in mutually beneficial ways (see Silvopasture Nexus). Industrial agriculture, however, separates crops from animals to the detriment of both. Confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs) harm animal health and are a major source of greenhouse gases. Reintegrating animals into crop production—also called mixed farming—offers a variety of benefits to our climate.
- We Make Tomorrow is a one day conference in London on November 25th for building workers’ power on climate and crisis. The conference will cover how rising energy prices, inflation, falling wages and the climate crisis are not only connected but actually being driven by the same systems. Workers in key sectors with trade union officials, climate justice activists, and scientists are encouraged to attend to discuss the urgently needed strategies and tactics to build a tomorrow that works for the majority. Tickets here.
- The COP28 Global Day of Action will take place on December 9th. The Climate Justice Coalition is coordinating this Day of Action in Britain in response to the global call out from the COP28 Coalition.

- Learn about the role that financial institutions, including banks, asset managers, and insurance companies, play in preserving and perpetuating negative gender and racial impacts through focusing on 9 regional case studies. WECAN’s third edition of The Gendered and Racial Impacts of the Fossil Fuel Industry in North America and Complicit Financial Institutions, highlighting the intersections of gender, race, and the fossil fuel industry and complicit financial institutions, was released earlier this month.
- Climate change poses growing threats to America’s farmers and ranchers, and at the same time, farmers and ranchers can be major players when it comes to advancing climate solutions. Ask your members of Congress to prioritize on-farm climate solutions for farmers and ranchers.
