One planet. One chance.

Unity creates results. As our climate reaches its tipping point, our only chance for success is worldwide impact. To inspire action that makes a global difference, speak up and educate others about the importance of climate change.

 

Join the movement for climate action by educating ourselves on the issue.

The Climate Story Campaign

A climate story is a personal experience that connects you to our climate. Every person on this planet has a climate story, it’s about reflecting on your experience within nature to write your own. Listen to three stories from Lindsey Coffey, Michala Rubinstein, and Roxanne Baeyens who share their personal and emotional connection to climate change.

Upcoming Projects:

Green Europe Project

Lindsey and Michala Rubinstein travel to Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest, Paris, and Amsterdam in search of environmentally conscientious businesses making a positive impact on our planet. 

Interview with Vegetarisk

Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, Vegetarisk is a non-profit organization educating the public about plant-based diets. They introduced vegan foods in supermarkets, schools, and public kitchens while gaining political influence throughout their country. 

Efficient climate action begins with legislation. Voting for a candidate with climate action on their agenda is a great start. On a local level, speak to your community’s city council to address your concerns and introduce eco-friendly solutions. 

Online petitions are also a great way to demand the government’s attention.

Join the Climate Reality training program to become a Climate Reality Leader and make a difference on climate change. Led by former Vice President Al Gore, this training program will provide you a deeper understanding of climate change, systemic racism within the climate crisis, how to confront these challenges, and introduce practical solutions. 

Climate Reality Leader training equips you with the skills and network to raise awareness and influence public opinion, inspire others to take action, as well as effectively challenge policymakers to act. 

At home, live consciously:

  • switch to a black background on your cellphone/tablet
  • eat vegetarian one day during the week
  • use reusable bags at the grocery store
  • shop local and shop wisely
  • shop vintage and donate
  • unplug unused appliances and electronics: cellphone charger, hair straightener, blender, toaster
  • avoid keeping the TV, DVD on standby
  • using low energy light: LED bulbs, motion sensors, and light sensitive fixtures
  • switch to renewable energy through your utility/energy provider
  • insulate your home
  • only wash in full loads: dishwasher and laundry
  • avoid pre-rinsing dishes and the “heated dry” setting on your dishwasher
  • purchase energy-efficient brands
  • purchase an electric or hybrid vehicle
  • drive and fly less: walk more, use public transit, carpool, cross-country trains
  • when flying, fly economy, avoid layovers, and pack light
  • telework
  • print double-sided
  • RECYCLE

Quotes from Lindsey Coffey:

“Education leads to awareness which fosters change. When you’re aware of the downfalls of humanity you realize the need to adjust, to redefine, and to reform. Ignorance is not always bliss when that naivety harbors destruction. ”​

“By focusing on climate justice, we can create change in every aspect of life, touching all ecosystems. Climate justice speaks on many levels. It represents taking action on preserving Mother Earth, stabilizing the future of humanity, and securing equality within gender, race, the economy and socio-economic status, as well as between countries.”

“Inequality within climate change stems from socio-economic status, gender, minority groups and geographical location. We see these effects within air quality, rising sea levels, warmer climate, habitat destruction, and within the quality and availability of our water.”

“We see biodiversity loss in every ecosystem. Biodiversity, which is every living thing, consists of interdependent relationships where one change affects all areas of life. There is a system within nature that creates the perfect balance and when that balance is disrupted, the life cycle alters significantly wreaking havoc on habitats and wildlife, alters our air and water quality, affects climate, and impacts humanity.”

“Pollution is one of the main contributors to the climate crisis and is also the easiest to combat. Visually we see pollution everyday, mainly through improperly discarded items and single-use plastics. However, there is pollution that is more difficult to notice. Due to improper waste disposal and increased air pollution, our oceans absorb more CO2 causing ocean acidification. This affects our aquatic ecosystems and the harvesting of multiple food sources. Not only are our fish intoxicated, the vaporized ocean water that is stored in our clouds, fall down as acidic rain watering our crops.”

“As the water crisis is not just a human issue, our demands on water sources such as lakes, rivers, and streams cause drastic harm to ecosystems. Overuse, increase of demand, pollution, poor management, lack of infrastructure, and changes in weather patterns due to global warming are all key factors that affect the availability of fresh water. According to World Wildlife, because of these stressors, by 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population may face water shortages, which will cause humanity and entire ecosystems to suffer. Some viable solutions are to implement desalination plants, harvest rainwater, restore our ecosystems, and as large amounts of waste water comes from agriculture, turn to contour farming. There are always solutions, and it is our choice if we continue to be a part of the problem.”
