Your climate archetype is:

The Caregiver

The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.

-Coretta Scott King

The Caregiver finds a deep sense of happiness in helping and supporting others.

You never ignore a call for help. Whether it’s a friend, a family member, or even a complete stranger, you feel a strong sense of responsibility for the people around you. So, is it any wonder that you’re looking to participate in the climate movement?

The Caregiver is uniquely capable of guiding their peers and their community towards shared objectives.

Simply put, you lift people up. And sure, you might lean towards introversion, but you’re still a social person. In fact, the relationships you foster are as deep as they get—just ask some of your closest friends.

The Caregiver finds themselves more comfortable in structured environments.

This doesn’t mean that you’re rigid or inflexible, though. As a matter of fact, you are able to establish a feeling of structure and security where none previously existed. Or, in other words, you make the world a more comfortable and hospitable place for your peers.

The Caregiver is the beating heart of any social movement.

Your warmth, supportiveness, devotion, and attention to detail make you an invaluable asset to the climate movement. And a community without people like you is not a community at all. Check out the resources below to find out how The Caregiver champions climate action.
