Climate change knows no borders

Climate change volunteering

Inspire climate action

Climate change knows no borders. It’s real and is happening right now.
Though it’s widely known that urgent action is needed to save our planet, many countries across the globe still have little to no awareness of climate change.
By joining us on our Climate Change programs, you’ll help raise awareness in communities that have little to no understanding of how their actions could be negatively impacting the planet. You’ll run workshops on climate change, waste management and the 5 R’s of sustainability with children and adults to raise awareness and enact change.
If you want to be a part of helping shape the next generation of change-makers, this is the program for you.
