This climate petition could save the world
Scientists warn us that climate change could accelerate beyond our control, threatening our survival and everything we love. One top scientist just warned that we are all in major trouble if global warming releases gigantic amounts of methane gas from the arctic tundra. The UN knows this is one of several catastrophic climate threats we’re facing, and is bringing world leaders to New York for a major summit on this global emergency.
Climate change red alert
Climate change is the greatest threat facing our world today–and we are almost out of time to stop it. Humankind has the technology to stop a climate catastrophe–but only with bold government action. Now it’s up to the world’s people to demand that their leaders listen to the scientists.
What can we do?
Avaaz is sending its global petition to national leaders around the world–along with personalized messages from citizens of every country on earth.
“Hundreds of thousands of us will take to the streets for the People’s Climate March just before the summit.” – Avaaz.org
The Wishing Well was established in 2010 to offer children in out-of-home care, such as foster care and residential care, a range of healing and treatment options usually not accessible as a free therapy in mainstream health.
The Wishing Well raises funds to enable children and young people to access developmentally-appropriate and trauma-informed treatments shown to be highly effective in dealing with severe trauma and neglect. These therapies respond to the unique needs of each child and young person.
The Wishing Well is a not-for-profit incorporated charity organisation, established and managed by people seeking to improve outcomes for children and young people in out-of-home care and their families. The Wishing Welll recognises the importance of the act of giving. We recognise the significance of the participation of community members and all donations are most appreciated.
The Wishing Well operates ethically, effectively and empathically with a view to achieving quality outcomes and a satisfying working environment, and as such we support organisations that encompass similar ideals.
The Wishing Well gratefully receives donations, funding and resources through bequests, corporate partnerships, fundraising events, grants, online donations and other fund raising activities. Money donated to The Wishing Well enables traumatised children access to healing therapies. Please see our website for more information:
How you can help
Avaaz will be sending our messages to national, local and international leaders.
“We call on you to keep global temperature rise under the unacceptably dangerous level of 2 degrees C, by phasing out carbon pollution to zero. To achieve this, you must urgently forge realistic global, national and local agreements, to rapidly shift our societies and economies to 100% clean energy by 2050. Do this fairly, with support to the most vulnerable among us. Our world is worth saving and now is our moment to act. But to change everything, we need everyone. Join us.”
Send your message that asks for a commitment to bold domestic efforts and a new international agreement to avert climate disaster and move the world economy away from carbon fuels.
