Welcome to First Here, Then Everywhere, the only online network by and for young climate activists.
Founded by Chloe Maxmin (22), FHTE is a place for young climate activists to speak out and share experiences with other activists around the globe. Here you have the opportunity to connect with other young change-makers, share insights, ideas, troubles, accomplishments, and questions. Become a part of this powerful network.
FHTE arose out of Chloe Maxmin’s experience with climate activism and how one person and one group of people can spark a movement. She experienced this phenomenon twice in her life: through her work with the Climate Action Club, which she started at her rural Maine high school, and with Divest Harvard, the campaign that she co-founded at Harvard University calling on Harvard to divest from fossil fuel companies. This website also acts as a platform for her work, thoughts, writing, and media coverage.
MISSION: The mission of this site is to unite young climate activists around the world to fight climate change. Whether you already have an active venture and you want to connect with other environmentalists, or you are just beginning your project and you want support and advice–First Here, Then Everywhere will enable you to find the help you need.
PHILOSOPHY: Our mission will spread across the country and the world, motivating teenagers to stand up and act. Collectively, our actions will effect long-lasting positive change.
