Did you know that at least one in three women will experience some form of violence during their lifetime? It is one of the most widespread violations of human rights and has long-term devastating effects. We can change this: join us and say ‘Enough’!
We help people caught up in natural disasters and conflicts across the world with clean water, food, sanitation and protection. At any given time, we are responding to over 30 emergency situations, giving life-saving support to those most in need.
Millions of people are being forced from their homes, risking everything to escape conflict, disaster, poverty or hunger. From those fleeing the war in Syria or climate change-induced droughts, to those stranded in inadequate conditions in Europe, you can help us give life-saving support to refugees in the countries where they need it most.
The crisis in Syria continues to cause tremendous human suffering to people both inside and outside the country. The conflict is driving the largest refugee crisis in the world. Nearly 12 million people – 2 in 3 Syrians – are still dependent on humanitarian aid. They need your help.
Yesterday, the voices of 10 million people from around the world, who have demanded a FAB deal on climate, were handed to the Head of the UN Climate Conference, Yvo de Boer and the Danish Climate Minister and President of this conference, Connie Hedegaard. Look at more photos of the hand-in on our Flickr page.
Hoy TckTckTck, la alianza de organizaciones y grupos contra el cambio climático, lanza una petición musical al mundo entero.
El remix de la canción "Beds are burning" de Midnight Oil, cuya letra ha sido reeescrita por el propio grupo incluye a decenas de cantantes y otros famosos que reclaman a os gobernantes que actúen contra el mayor riesgo que amenaza a la humanidad: el cambio climático.
Today the TckTckTck, an unprecedented global alliance of civil society organizations, trade unions, faith groups and individuals, is launching a global musical petition for a climate deal in Copenhagen in December.
The re-mix of the song "Beds are Burning" features over 60 artists and celebrities, and has been re-written by Midnight Oil themselves to reflect the greatest humanitarian crisis facing humankind today.
Más de 1200 personas participaron en la acción creativa de Central Park para pedir a los líderes mundiales que "despierten" ante el cambio climático. Alison Woodhead acudió a la cita para seguir el acontecimiento.
El cambio climático es un tema muy deprimente, por lo que resulta alentador acudir a Central Park en un soleado domingo de septiembre y ver a millares de personas comunes manifestar pacífica y alegremente que todavía tenemos tiempo para solucionar el problema.
The usually sleepy climate negotiations were given a wake up alarm call today by a wailing siren outside the conference centre. It was an NGO stunt involving two trucks and two very loud air raid sirens, each enclosed in a locked cage. To turn the sirens off, the police had to cut their way through each metal cage to reach the machinery and arrest the protesters.
On their way to the plenary delegates at the UN climate talks here in Bonn, pass by a ragged bear holding up a sign: 'No coins, it's change I need.' It is a silent protest. If we would hold a minutes silence for each of the death caused by climate change, we would not be uttering a word for the next 180 days and even longer.
It was an aerial photo made by more than 400 volunteers who braved heavy rain to send out their message to the world.
The areal image was possible thanks to white boiler suits that were provided by the tck tck tck campaign. The passionate activists included members of NGOs from all over the world as well as local participants.
We all lay down in a park near the climate negotiations meeting, using our bodies to spell out the words "Yes You Can".
