Without action now, we are facing an average temperature rise of 4°C by the end of the century. In some areas, such as the polar ice caps, temperatures could rise by as much as 16°C. That means one thing for families in the developing world: disaster.
It’s a massive injustice that, despite being least responsible for CO2 emissions, poor communities are first to face their impact. Whilst Practical Action is already working with these families and communities to enable them to adapt to the changing climate, we need your help to change the society we live in.
By working together, we can tackle poverty by campaigning for change. Learn how to do this at our workshop in South London in April...
