Climate change

Recognising the disproportionate impact of climate change on the poorest and most vulnerable, The Elders support transformative leadership to deliver a sustainable, secure and more equitable world.

Elders+Youngers

The Elders seek to listen to young people and encourage youth leadership across every area of our work, from climate change to conflict resolution.

Equality for Girls & Women

Men and women are born with equal rights. Societies with greater equality between men and women are healthier, safer and more prosperous. Equality for girls and women is a core focus of The Elders’ work.

Iran

The Elders support greater openness and dialogue between Iran and the international community, and encourage Iran to play a stabilising role in the wider Middle East.

Israel-Palestine

After decades of process, there is still no peace. The Elders support and encourage all parties to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict who are working for a lasting, just peace.

Myanmar

The Elders support an inclusive process of political reform and peace-building in Myanmar, and call on all parties to strengthen efforts to promote national reconciliation, ensure human rights for all, and enhance socio-economic justice.
