climate action and resilience
The average temperature on the planet is rising at an unusually fast pace, and is threatening the balance of the world’s natural ecosystems. The reason for extreme temperatures, floods, large scale fires and mass extinctions of species is mainly attributed to our unsustainable consumption behaviour, that can be noted since the beginning of industrialisation. As a result, human lives are being increasingly endangered, as we rely on natural resources.
To ensure the survival of human lives, we need to keep the increase in global temperature below 1,5° C above preindustrial levels. And for this, rapid and large-scale action is needed across all levels; individual, organisational and societal.
Here are resources to better understand the drivers of climate change and main sources of emissions, as well as solutions and actions that can be taken at different levels.
