ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT THE CLIMATE CRISIS... AND YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO?
DOES THE CLIMATE CRISIS SEEM TOO BIG OR TOO COMPLEX FOR YOU TO MAKE ANY REAL IMPACT?
ARE YOU EXPECTING THE GOVERNMENT, THE U.N. OR SOMEONE ELSE TO HANDLE IT?
IF GIVEN THE CHANCE TO ACTUALLY END THE CRISIS, WOULD YOU TAKE IT?
If so, then you’ve come to the right place!
2030 or Bust is an activist hub, mobilizing individuals and communities to seize responsibility for ending the climate crisis, taking the actions required to bridge the 2030 emissions gap.
We have developed strategies, action plans and events that put the power to end the crisis in your hands.
START WITH THE 3 STEPS TO POWER!
CONFRONT THE MYTHS
“It’s too big & too complex for me to impact.”
“The government is handling it.”
“The Paris Agreement fixes it. “
“We can get to it later.”
“It’s not that big a deal.”
“If we do our best, it will turn out.”
Communities We Empower
We are developing a platform to connect the global community of young people empowered through 2030 or Bust. All ages of youth are participating, from elementary to college students! Young people around the world are pioneering this unique opportunity to empower themselves and others in ending the climate crisis AND are contributing to the design of our app and youth initiatives. From building the app to organizing school empowerment projects, the youth of 2030 or Bust are paving the way!
This is not the usual conference of talking about climate change; this is a mobilization for action. Attendees are empowered to be effective leaders in impacting the situation with real action in real time to produce the real result of a sustainable future. Participants have the opportunity to collaborate and build alliances, to take the lead in mobilizing the world to end the climate crisis.
World On Wheels originated in 2022 with the first ever World On Wheels Weekend. On four continents, skaters took to the streets to spread the word that with enough of us taking the right actions, we can bridge the critical 2030 emissions gap and get us on track to ending the climate crisis.
We were proud to have among our partners and sponsors Zumiez, Justin’s, Patagonia, MAC and The Skatepark Project (formerly the Tony Hawk Foundation).
This year’s WOW Weekend (May 27-29) will be even bigger than last year’s, with an expanded range of locations and activities! These events give the skaters in each location the chance to tell the world about the local effects of global warming, and to produce a direct-action climate activity in their community. All this in addition to skate races, competitions, lessons, and whatever else they come up with as their unique expression of Skaters Ending the Climate Crisis!
SKATERS CHANGING THE WORLD!
The Global 50 is our program designed to train climate/community activists in the principles and methodology of contextual activism. Participants take on leadership roles in initiating and executing projects to empower specific communities in demonstrating their own unique expressions of ending the climate crisis.
We partnered with REI in educating and empowering their members through discovering the global environmental impact of their daily actions. This was a presentation we did at their New York flagship store, showing their phone displays right after they downloaded the 2030 or Bust app.
As part of their Earth Day campaign, Apple selected the 2030 or Bust app as one of their featured technology and learning tools. This was the Earth Day presentation at their San Francisco facility.
The United Nations
The motivation of the SDG Summer School is for teams of University students, in close collaboration with UN organisations, to conceive ways to use open data, crowdsourcing technologies, and low-cost open-source solutions to tackle sustainable development in ways that even schoolchildren can participate in, and develop prototypes suitable for deployment. It brings together students (Bachelor and Masters level) from Tsinghua University in Beijing, from the University of Geneva, and from around the world. The development of the 2030 or Bust app was selected as one of the SDG Summer School initiatives.
