Right now, scientists are warning that we only have 10 years to put a cap on climate change by making sure the earth’s temperature doesn’t exceed 1.5°C. If we fail, it will mean worse droughts, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people.
For decades a movement has been growing to protect our planet. From marching down the street to demand action from governments or even just planting a bee-friendly seed in your back garden, these little actions can contribute to a better future for ourselves and our next generations.
We know that habitat loss, including from climate change, creates more contact between animals and humans making it easier for viruses to take root and spread. So the better able we are to protect nature, the better able we’ll be to protect our future.
And even from isolation, we can still take action — take a moment to sign the petition to support a future where nature and people can thrive. World Wildlife Fund will deliver it directly to the head of the United Nations as phase one in their new push for a healthy planet.
