THE ORIGIN STORY

Climate Crusaders are a league of sustainable superheroes championing climate resilience, ecological awareness, and environmental justice for all. We are here to inspire, educate, and enact solution-based actions to the climate crisis using well researched scientific educational materials, regional climate resiliency plans, eye catching media content, multi-generational public activations, a web of organizational partnerships and a multicultural approach to climate justice.

 

THE ORIGIN STORY

PinClipart_edited.png

Conceived in 2017, Climate Crusaders was brought into being by artist, activist and community educator Alexander Zastera. As they started to understand the complexities of the effects of climate change, Zastera saw the need for more climate communication and fun scientific curriculum in a region so vulnerable to rising seas.

Through research program intensives like Catalyst Miami's CLEAR program, a masters in environmental science from Florida International University (FIU), advocacy at city hall, a deep dive into regional climate resiliency plans, friendships with scientists, policy makers, activists, engineers, doctors, artists, city planners, community members & more, Zastera continues to build the Climate Crusaders vision to advocate for a cooler tomorrow.
