Life In The Ocean: Protecting What Sustains Us

Oceans cover just over 70 percent of the Earth's surface; it's no exaggeration to state that these expanses of water are vital for our continued survival. The seas on our planet provide food, economic stability and generate most of the oxygen we breathe — when climate change disrupts and threatens oceanic life; it endangers all living things (including us).

Innovative Travel and Transportation Climate Action

Travel and transportation play a substantial role in fueling unsustainable levels of climate change. With road vehicles, rail, shipping and aviation accounting for approximately a quarter of global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions; it's clear that urgent environmental innovation is needed within these industries — as well as changes to our own behaviours and choices.

Understanding How Climate Action Redefines Our Future

The decisions we make now will impact our future; a reality we likely can all understand because we've experienced this within our personal lives. We frequently make choices based on how to positively influence where we're headed and/or mitigate any potential adversity. It's much the same when it comes to global warming — what we decide to do today has a ripple effect on whether or not we alleviate or magnify the disruption and damage that climate change brings.

Indigenous Youth Climate Activists You Need To Follow

Although comprising a small percentage of the world's population, Indigenous Peoples protect around 80% of the Earth's biodiversity. For many, their traditional knowledge and way of life — often stretching back through centuries or even millennia — exist because of an interdependent relationship with the land.

‘Carbon Bomb’ Projects and their Global Impact

If you ever needed further proof that fossil fuel industries and world leaders/government representatives don't give a shit about tackling global warming (most notably those that are oil and gas investors); then look no further than the 'carbon bomb' projects they're establishing.
