Time to act

The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports that the planet has warmed by one degree Celsius since the industrial revolution.

Seven out of Australia’s ten hottest years have occurred since 2005, with the 2013-2017 period being the hottest five-year period ever recorded.

The IPCC urges action to prevent warming beyond 1.5 degrees Celsius. We have until 2030 to transform economies and the energy, transport and food systems which drive them.

WE CAN REVERSE GLOBAL WARMING!

Project Drawdown is a world-class research organisation that reviews, analyses and identifies the most viable global climate solutions and shares these with the world. Project Drawdown has reviewed all the available solutions for reversing global warming, ranking the top 100 solutions.

It concludes that it is possible to reverse global warming by implementing known solutions.

There is great potential to reduce emissions by changing electricity supply, building and transport systems. We can absorb carbon through reforestation and sustainable agriculture techniques. Educating women and girls and the availability of family planning in developing countries are also high priority strategies.

For funders

We’re building a climate lens toolkit and we’d love your input. Perspectives from a wide variety of foundations with different focus areas will make the toolkit a dynamic game changer.

If you are from a foundation and would like to participate in our working group, or just share your views and needs, we want to hear from you.
