The future is here.
The storm is now.

We stand on the brink of climate catastrophe: of ecological devastation, of flooding, drought, disease, famine and war.

It is time for us to act.

Our politicians have been bought off and they are scared. We are the resistance. We are done with doing as we are told. It is time to ask for what we want.

It is time to make them hear us: to stand our ground non-violently. To dismantle the system and protect the living and ask.

We are free citizens with power not consumers. We are so much more than the powerless customer the system needs to fill its gut. We are the generation who are going to get fucked over in a way no generation has in the past.

The climate has changed. It is time for us to rise. Ask for zero emissions.

We burn with boredom for the status quo.
We are the culture hackers, the crackers, the disruptors, the now. We are the passion of the age The watchers The ones who get it – the future is here.

The storm is now.
And we are ready.

We are fury, resistance and hope. We are the future. Join us.

THE FUTURE X THE HUNGER GAMES

“HOPE IS THE ONLY THING STRONGER THAN FEAR”

Details of our London Hunger Games protest on December 11 here.

The Hunger Games tells of a dystopian future where climate change has wreaked havoc. Rising seas have eaten away at much of America and droughts, storms and fires have triggered brutal war. After the war a decadent, ruthless elite has taken control.

The story that unfolds in the Hunger Games is about young people finding the courage to take on this elite – about their power to fight back and take control of their future. This is why The Future loves The Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games is set in a fictional dystopian future, yet the injustice it describes is already a truth for people who live on the front line of climate change. So far most of us are lucky. We live in a world where climate change has not yet led to widespread apocalyptic wars or famines. But every day the scientists are warning us that this future is coming fast. And the elites that are in power now are failing to protect us from it. We need to find the courage to take them on or our generation will end up stuck in our own real dystopia.

It is time for us to find our courage: to take down powerful elites and to build a future in which we can live well.

Young people around the world already feel the power of the Hunger Games story. In Thailand students have been arrested for using the Hunger Games Mockingjay salute as a symbol of their resistance against a corrupt and oppressive government.

This December, while the world’s governments gather at a UN climate meeting in Lima, Peru, The Future is going to start using The Hunger Games to inspire our resistance.  At dawn and dusk on December 11 we are going to paint The Future’s Eye symbol on our faces and read excerpts from the book.

We are going to do this inside the United Nations meeting, and in public places in cities across the world. We want you to be a part of this. Tell us here if you are willing to and we will help connect you to other people in your city or town.

As President Snow says in The Hunger Games: “Hope. It is the only thing stronger than fear. A little hope is effective. A lot of hope is dangerous.”

The elites don’t want us to hope. But we are determined to.

Will you volunteer?
