Welcome H.O.M.E!

About H.O.M.E Campaign

Hands Off Mother Earth (H.O.M.E) is a global campaign to defend our one precious home, Planet Earth, against the threat of geoengineering experiments.

The HOME campaign provides a common platform for organizations and individuals around the world to register their opposition to geoengineering experiments.  The campaign asserts that the seas, skies and soils of our home planet should not be used as a laboratory for these unjust and risky technological fixes.

The HOME campaign was launched in April 2010 at The World People’s Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth in Cochabamba Bolivia by a coalition of  international civil society groups, indigenous peoples organizations and social movements. These groups invite other organizations worldwide as well as individuals to sign up in support of the campaign.
The HOME campaign will collect together messages of concern including photos, video and audio messages to deliver to decision-makers in key international meetings throughout the coming year leading up to the next meeting of the UNFCCC in Cancun in December 2010. We will also work together on common actions.


What are the aims of the Hands Off Mother Earth Campaign ?


Hands Off Mother Earth aims to build a global movement to oppose real world geoengineering experiments via these three calls:
  • We are telling the Geoengineers to back off from conducting experiments on our home planet: Hands Off Mother Earth!
  • We asking Governments to enact a ban on real world geoengineering experiments both nationally and globally (under the auspices of the United Nations).
  • We are calling on Peoples’ Movements and Civil Society Organisations to join in recognizing Mother Earth as our common home whose integrity should never be violated by geoengineering  experimentation or deployment.
