THEN CHANGE TODAY.
The future is open: Talking Hope drives and supports systems change
around climate, democracy, social justice and public health.
WHY TALKING HOPE
Our world is going through profound change: Climate crisis and biodiversity loss are forcing us to rethink the way we live. Their effects are interconnected and affect us all: Our personal health and the health of our societies, our economic wellbeing and the functioning of democracy – all this is linked to how well we respond to the climate crisis.
Talking Hope is led by the ideal of a fair and sustainable world in which people of all backgrounds can thrive. Bold climate solutions will contribute to more well-being, and a fairer, healthier, and safer society. The climate transition is not just a challenge. It is also an invitation to improve lives and better build our future.
Pope Francis has written an encyclical on the climate crisis. He does not mince words in denouncing the powers obsessed with vested interests, profit-orientation and technocratic thinking. But what also impressed us: The radicalism of his message is combined with hope – hope that is not a shelter to hide in but a call for action.
“Hope is not a pink, gooey-eyed look at the future. It is the recognition that we can – and always have – changed the world.“

THE TRANSFORMATION MANUFACTURY
Talking Hope empowers and accelerates collective action for change. We design transformative strategies, and work on solutions-focused campaigns and communications at the intersections of climate and energy, democracy and social justice, health and development. We work with civic society, philanthropic, public and private partners as well as the media to create and foster pathways of positive change.
BUILDING BRIDGES AND CONSENSUS
It takes the world to change the world: To widen the consensus for a sustainable future, more people of all backgrounds must share in the conversation how to realize it. We respect diversity with diversity. Talking Hope is not just a team of experts. We are people with many different stories and many different origins. And that makes us even better.
