Global warming is a major problem for all of humanity. And the crisis is getting worse. Global greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase and 2016 is the warmest year on record. The Earth is warming up. The ice caps are melting. Climatic disasters are becoming more frequent and more intense. Ecosystems are threatened and climate refugees are already a reality. Our planet is unrest, there is no doubt about it, and human beings are responsible, scientists are unanimous.

The most important and urgent decisions can only be made by yourself; however, you can act for the planet:
① Sign petitions on the Internet (on the GreenPeace or WWF website for example)
② Support associations financially (such as GreenPeace or WWF for example). If everyone gave two dollars, it could make a difference. But everyone has to get on with it, without exception.
③ Give some of your free time. By becoming an activist, you are taking concrete action to protect the environment and the climate and to increase international fighting locally.
④ Adopts responsible behaviour. Favouring seasonal vegetables or ending the reign of the all-disposable, changing electricity suppliers, buying food in bulk, taking public transport, here is a non-exhaustive overview of the small actions that, combined and multiplied, can do a lot.
Remember: Actions speak louder than words.

"The fires in Australia are currently raging. I've had a total of 5-6 days off school so far because of them. The Earth is getting warmer, and as the dominant animals, we should be disgusted at our actions. Slowly disintegrating the planet that we are lucky enough to live on, and some of us not realizing the outcome."
"I live in Australia, and at the moment fires are raging and the drought is in full swing. Every day, when you step outside it's like stepping into an oven. I was recently part of one of the climate change protests, and it was amazing! So great to see so many people stepping up to protect our planet."
"I live in Canada, during winter, and there's no snow! It's raining right now. This is happening every year, we need to help the planet"
« I live in Australia, a few months ago, bushfires raged through parts of Australia and devastated land, animals and people. It was horrific and we are still feeling the pain. Now, we have the drought to worry about also, different places are on various levels of water restrictions and it get peoples' spirits down very low. We need to stop this! »
« Here in Canada, right now in summer it’s colder than it usually is! Last week it was snowing. This week it’s suddenly slightly warmer! People think that this isn’t a big deal but we need to stop climate change! »
