Goal 13: Climate Action

The thirteenth UN Sustainable Development Goal: Responsible Consumption & Production

From the UN:
"Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow.

People are experiencing the significant impacts of climate change, which include changing weather patterns, rising sea level, and more extreme weather events. The greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are driving climate change and continue to rise. They are now at their highest levels in history. Without action, the world’s average surface temperature is projected to rise over the 21st century and is likely to surpass 3 degrees Celsius this century—with some areas of the world expected to warm even more. The poorest and most vulnerable people are being affected the most.

Affordable, scalable solutions are now available to enable countries to leapfrog to cleaner, more resilient economies. The pace of change is quickening as more people are turning to renewable energy and a range of other measures that will reduce emissions and increase adaptation efforts."

The CIVICS project serves as a platform for young people to be actively involved in their communities. Groups of students will be guided to do work focusing on issues like environment, eradication of poverty, women education, education and literacy. Students will plan action projects and respond some of these issues through a process of reflection, dialogue and action.

Every Day is Earth Day

The problem of saving the Earth is the most important nowadays. You are invited to this project in order to show your real activities in the protection of the air, water, plants and animals. All the works may be published during all the year.

Students from different countries understand the importance of saving the Earth, and share their activities related to cleaning it. It's necessary to help our students to understand well the importance of the problem and that they can do a lot for saving our Mother Earth.
