Our Mission

The Mission of 7th Generations Advisors is to empower individuals and organizations to create and adopt solutions that protect our environment and fight climate change, based on the ancient First Nations philosophy that the decisions we make today should result in a sustainable world seven generations into the future.

We recognize the link between climate, conservation and the health and well-being of all living things and we strive to initiate, support and implement projects that support this interconnection. We have cultivated deep partnerships in diverse issue areas that enables us to work at this intersection.

To carry out our mission, we:

  • Provide expertise and guidance to decision-makers in government, business, non-profit, academia, and other stakeholders (based on our team’s deep expertise in each of these sectors) on environmental policies that address the urgent need to take action. This work spans from sharing knowledge to designing and implementing new projects.

  • Partner with non-profit organizations and other key stakeholders on campaigns and initiatives that utilize bold tactics, including creative communications, litigation, value added project management, fundraising and investor education/outreach (based on our experience with environmental litigation and celebrity empowerment/engagement, among other relevant skills).
  • Advise companies on sustainability and related issues
  • Educate the public through research, speeches, op-eds, books, and blogs (including numerous widely published books and op-ed contributions through social media and news outlets).
