For Our Grandchildren (4RG) is a Canadian organization of climate activist seniors who gave themselves the mission to engage and mobilize their community to take effective action to combat climate change. “In relentless pursuit of this mission, we will advocate/enlist support from our local governments and collaborate effectively with like-minded community organizations.”

In each 4RG monthly newsletter they present some Hopeful stories and some Alarming stories from the past month, as well as upcoming local events and local stories.

“It is bad out there and you can hardly avoid being overwhelmed by alarming news everywhere in the news so we place more emphasis on positive climate news because we feel that the good news can provide us with hope and courage – hope because we can see that change is happening, and courage to keep trying so that our efforts can make a difference.”
