As we face the new era of global boiling as identified by the UN Secretary-General António Guterres, Gen Unison has become a source of hope for climate activists. By bridging generational divides and joining forces across different age groups, Gen Unison proposes a sustainable solution to the climate crisis. Stronger together, this task force of informed and passionate climate activists is driving meaningful change, influencing policy, and making tangible strides toward a more stable planet.
“We’re drawing on the power of unity, mentorship, and intergenerational cooperation to address one of the most pressing challenges of our time,” says Gen Unison founder G.K. Hunter.
Why mending the generational divide matters in the fight against global boiling
There are many documented cases of conflicting attitudes toward social issues across different generations, and this misalignment is even more glaring during discussions surrounding the climate crisis. Younger generations – more specifically, Gen Z and Millennials – often grapple with feelings of anxiety, frustration, and resentment as they face a world plagued by environmental crises. On the other hand, older generations – with all their wisdom and experience – sometimes struggle to understand the urgency of modern issues like climate change.
The misunderstanding and mistrust that this generational divide creates results in a lack of collaboration in a situation that relies heavily on collaboration for a sustainable solution.
“The youth are increasingly frustrated and scared that they’re inheriting a damaged planet, which is why so many teenagers are protesting,” says G.K. Hunter. “Our platform aims to rebuild trust between the generations by matching young, energetic climate activists with trusted elders to launch and fund their climate initiatives.”
Gen Unison’s vision
As the Maui wildfires, the Libyan floods, and the Chinese typhoons have demonstrated, government-based solutions and policy change alone are not enough to stall global boiling. In addition to these initiatives, it is crucial to foster an attitude shift while offering the youth a productive outlet for their climate anxiety.
Gen Unison has built a platform that brings different generations together as allies in the fight against global boiling.
Healing the planet through mentorship
One of the initiatives Gen Unison has attracted attention among the climate activist community is their mentorship program that pairs young climate activists with experienced elders. In so doing, Gen Unison ensures climate activists who want to make a difference on our planet have access to the wisdom and resources that older generations tend to have.
Conversely, elders can learn valuable skills from members of Gen Z and Millenials, who tend to be tech-savvy. By combining the wisdom and resources of the older generations with the energy and tech savviness of younger generations, Gen Unison is building a more sustainable solution to the climate crisis. Finally, the world has a solution that does not rely on stretched government resources or – worse still – governments that don’t prioritize the climate crisis.
Building community and collaboration
Gen Unison is on a mission to create a community and a culture of collaboration that spans generations. This sense of community creates a safe space where individuals from different generations can come together, share stories, and work collectively on projects that have a positive impact on the environment.
Healing generations, healing the earth
Gen Unison’s mission approaches global boiling from a unique perspective – one that focuses on restoring trust between generations. By creating unity between different generations and pooling their resources as well as their energy, Gen Unison has developed a solution to climate change that will create a meaningful and lasting impact.
