Planetary Emergency Declaration

Version 1.0, January 1, 2023


We humans are ruling the planet! The future of humanity and the planet is in our hands. While we have created a life of prosperity and abundance for many, many more are suffering and the Earth's life-support system is in a planetary emergency. To overcome the emergency and have more of us share in the benefits of our achievements, we all need to come together to face the challenge. Only if we face the planetary emergency can we avoid a dystopic future. Together we need to engage in the urgent actions to change the paths we are on, and together we can develop the pathways to a future where Earth remains a place for all of us..

We recognize: The Earth's life-support system is ailing and the impacts on humanity are increasingly catastrophic.

We understand: The Prognosis for the Earth's life-support system and humanity's future is very dire.

We acknowledge: Many efforts have been made at all levels to save the Earth's life-support system and humanity.

We realize: These efforts are so far failing in that our situation continues to get worse at an ever faster pace.


We pledge to: Unite and engage in urgent actions and longterm transformation to ensure Earth remains a place for us, the human race and all other life.

We will address the immediate urgency through: A number of actions intended to keep our planet a safe operating space for humanity and nature.

To bring us out of the emergency, we will: Facilitate a global agreement on the future we want for humanity and our planet and develop pathways to that future.
