This week, the official UN body on climate science announced that humankind can avert a climate catastrophe -- but only if politicians change course, and fast. Avaaz has set up a tool allowing anyone in the world to send their national leaders a personal message on this issue.
The scientific report will be meaningless if it's not backed up by a global outcry. Send a message to world leaders now.
Avaaz.org is a community of global citizens who take action on the major issues facing the world today. Its aim is to ensure that the views and values of the world’s people -- and not just political elites and unaccountable corporations -- shape global decisions. Avaaz.org members are taking action for a more just and peaceful world and a vision of globalisation with a human face. Avaaz means "voice" or "song" in a variety of Asian, Middle Eastern and European languages. There are already 1 million people from 189 countries in the Avaaz.org community, and previous petitions from Avaaz have already brought about significant change.
