WELCOME TO THE
CLIMATE COACHING ALLIANCE
What is the
Climate Coaching Alliance?
The Climate Coaching Alliance (CCA) was set up in late 2019. We are focused on: transforming our practice; transforming our impact; and transforming the profession.
We participate in a positive shift in human awareness, to effect wider systemic changes in the world towards a truly regenerative future. “To give life to the forest of life”. We influence the global professional coaching community to bring in the deep and difficult questions of climate and ecological emergency into coaching conversations. If we are magnificently successful, our current role will no longer be needed by 2025.
What’s important about how we work?
The CCA employs the principles of livings systems in the way in which we operate. These principles are so important to us that our values are embedded into our principles of operation.
- Inclusiveness, diversity and connection (relationships) are important to support the resilience of us as individuals and as a community.
- Being a free, loving, global, inclusive community that builds relationships between people and planet, raising awareness towards a flourishing future.
- We give permission to all members to utilize and contribute to the development of the CCA architecture, and expertise to support and create systems change.
We hold space for personal, professional, social and ecological growth, through dialogue, networking, skill sharing, storytelling, and action.

The inspiration behind the CCA's creation
Inspired by the Climate Psychology Alliance, Alison Whybrow, Josie McLean and Eve Turner launched the Climate Coaching Alliance with the aim “to enable individual practitioners, and the profession of coaching to develop strategies and practices that provide our clients (individuals, leaders and their teams) the right space to step into their necessary leadership role in the face of the emergency. We want to be able to look future generations in the eye when they ask, “What did you do when the planet was in crisis and it needed your help?” and say “We tried to make a difference”.
Our profession has a unique position, working with some of the world’s top leaders. Many in the coaching profession really want to explore wider stakeholders, including the more-than–human world, in their work, but wonder how to do so. Through the Climate Coaching Alliance we want to provide the resources so that coaches have those tools to use as they think appropriate.”
