Shake Up The Establishment is a youth-led, registered (#1190975-4)  national non-partisan non-profit organization that operates within the geographical confines of what is currently known as "Canada", but what is referred to by its First Peoples, as Turtle Island.


Our Mission

We want to promote climate justice, through awareness campaigns and scientifically informed educational resource creation. as well as political action in a non-partisan manner. We believe the climate crisis is not a partisan issue; it is a scientific fact.

We collaborate directly with groups and communities working to address injustices, alongside our ongoing work improving environment and climate literacy, and most importantly, equity-focused practices.

At present, we are entirely volunteer-based but with your help, we would like to change that. We do understand the value of volunteering, as many of the members of SUTE are experienced and dedicated volunteers and will continue their tenure with us in that capacity given our obligations as a not-for-profit organization; however, not all individuals are afforded the privilege of being able to provide uncompensated work, nor in certain instances where emotional labour is involved, should the work go uncompensated.

Please donate and share, so we're able to provide more compensated consultant positions on projects we undertake, to ensure that young people who are working to ensure a safe and healthy future for us all, are paid for their labour.

Our Commitments

Indigenous peoples have inhabited Turtle Island for over 10,000 years, and were the sole inhabitants less than 500 years ago. We acknowledge that our address resides on Treaty 3 land, and is the traditional territory of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Mississaugas Peoples.

Turtle Island is still home to many Indigenous peoples and we at SUTE are thankful to be able to live, learn and work on this territory, whilst continuing to create meaningful change for the climate justice movement. We are aware that our actions as an organization and the work we put out have an impact on our land, and on all that inhabit it. We are humbled to be able to follow the lead of centuries long Indigenous-led efforts towards the protection and stewardship of this land and the people that inhabit it. We are committed to continually evaluating & decolonizing our practices, and we do our best to incorporate the lived experiences of the land defenders and protectors within our work. We also want to honour the voices of Black, and non-Black people of colour within our work, and continually recognize their resiliency in the face of years of systemic oppression as imposed by the Canadian state.

Our enterprise is inclusive of all folx who call the geographical confines of what is currently known as Canada, home, and we celebrate the horizontal learning that comes from our diverse identities. As an organization, we will try our utmost best to ensure that only individuals with lived experiences are speaking on behalf of their communities, while still recognizing that Black, Indigenous and communities of colour as well as the LGBTQ2S+ community, are not a monolith. We firmly believe in accountability, and commit to being as transparent as possible in our activism space; to research our topics well, support and centre community care, and minimize any harm, no matter the intent. We have strict policies and procedures to uphold these tenets, and update these on a yearly (or as-needed) basis.
