“You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.”   
--Douglas MacArthur

With Perseverance, Passion, and Hope, we will:

Take our historical place as elders of our culture. And, in that role forged by living through and enduring life’s challenges, we believe that we can be a source of wisdom, strength and hope for our younger generations.

Hold fast to our belief that the Stewardship of our Earth is a deeply-held societal value that compels us to speak and act in its defense.

Join with all our global neighbors to mutually support and encourage our quest for a better and more livable world for the generations to follow.

Courageously speak for those who are marginalized in today’s world as well as for the well-being of future generations.

Earnestly work to pass on our vision of hope and personal responsibility as Elder Stewards of the Earth to our children, grandchildren, and the entire global family.

Do you agree with our pledge? If so, we invite you to join with us in working for a better future. 

"Yes, I agree to the pledge and I commit to living as a Nebraska Climate Legacy Elder"
