WHEREGrandparents for a Safe Earth. United Kingdom.


Program Description

“We are a network of grandparents and elders who care deeply about the world our descendants will inherit. We have learned that the current plans of energy companies and governments will, if not radically changed, put our grandchildren’s future at risk. We seek to co-operate and enter into dialogue with others. Where other actions fail, we are prepared to take direct action, in a spirit of non-violence and respect.”

“We invite other groups of Grandparents for a Safe Earth to use that title and to include in brackets the name of your group’s locality and country, acknowledging that each group accepts responsibility for what it does.”
