Young people want to get busy saving the planet, and we can’t disappoint them!
A gift from you would make a huge difference in how we can respond to these kids! We are ready to hire core staff, and begin work on a world-wide social media-like platform that all Earth Guardians can use to build community, share their work, and access tools for action. We are expanding our fundraising efforts, which will also help us increase grants to youth Crews around the world, and we are growing our membership base to help build momentum toward a more just future for all.

Last weekend the12 elders from wisdom traditions from all over the world met in New York for the Council of Twelve on 26th and 27th November.
The opening ceremony of the Council, Sunday 26th November, was performed by the Mohawk delegation. As part of the Five Nations, they are the spiritual guardians of Manhattan and it was right and proper that their representatives opened and closed the Council. Otsitsakenra led the ceremony with his incredibly moving words, expressing gratitude and thanks to all elements of nature and humanity.
This was broadcast live on Facebook for the first time and was followed by our Global Meditation. This profound and deep meditation enabled everyone to connect to their hearts and to focus a united intention of Love and Unity for our planet.
The Facebook live event was watched by other 3,500 people and provided an incredibly moving first day for everyone.
You can watch the Facebook live event again on our Facebook page here:
497 groups of people in 48 countries joined the opening on Sunday in meditation.
The event took place at The Assemblage in New York and we are deeply grateful to have been able to hold the first day of the Council there.
The second day of the Council, on Monday 27th November, was held at the United Nations and enabled the 12 elders to meditate during the day on the issues facing our planet and find solutions on how we can best protect the Earth and how we can reconnect humanity with nature.
We are delighted that the event was such a success and we extend our deepest gratitude to the elders and all those who travelled to New York for the event, as well as all those involved in this deeply memorable event. We are sending a huge thank you to The Equator Initiative for their invaluable help in navigating our path into the U.N.
The Wisdom and Nature Exhibition was a huge success
Having started in London, moved to Paris and finished in New York, the Wisdom and Nature exhibition has been seen by thousands of people and reminded them of the importance of our connection to nature and the wisdom held by those who live in harmony with nature.
The exhibition closed on Wednesday 29th November with a fundraising auction which has raised crucial funds for our current projects.
We would like to thank all those involved, especially the artist who donated their art, Phillips auction house for sponsoring this event and to all those who placed bids on the artwork. We are delighted that it was such a wonderful event that touched many peoples hearts.
And that’s it for now.
The entire Le Ciel Foundation team is in gratitude for your beautiful intentions and support. We look forward to connecting with you all in the near future and keeping you up to date with our next steps.

Dear Earth Guardians Supporter,
We want to thank all of you who have supported Earth Guardians in 2017! This movement is growing so fast that we need everyone’s help to keep up! First, please forward this email to friends and family whom you think will want to support this growing movement.
While we work to build our resources, we need your help to assure we can respond to the youth all over the world who are stepping up to join their peers and make a huge difference for the future!
Here at Earth Guardians we are bursting with the energy of young people, on every continent, who are stepping forward to take action in their communities.
They are done being “the future”, and are committing to participate in the present to transform their own lives, the earth, and the lives of children to come. Earth Guardians is thrilled to be able to offer youth a way to act, to speak out, to activate their communities, and to affect a brighter future. We are captivated by the genius and focused commitment that is blooming out of the school yards, villages, and houses of Nigeria, Togo & Rwanda; Ireland, Norway & Poland; Australia, Bhutan & Malaysia; Mexico, the US & Brazil, among so many more.
Earth Guardians is inspiring, activating, and supporting youth in every latitude, terrain, and climate.
From micro-grants and mentorship, to global community-building, Earth Guardians has been supporting youth action for 25 years. Now, with thousands more young people contacting us, ready to get to work, we are experiencing such a massive surge that we must act quickly to keep up! We are working to grow our team, expand our fundraising efforts, increase grants to youth Crews, and plan for a strong 2018.
There is no question that the time is now, and we must act quickly. Your generosity will help us meet the demand of youth who are stepping up as leaders.
Your year-end gift places you firmly among the vast network of like-minded people who are turning the tide toward a healthier planet, healthier inhabitants, and hope and strength for the future.
Please consider a contribution to help support the work of Earth Guardians, as we further the youth movement toward change. We cannot grow this movement without you!
In love and solidarity,
