Earth Emergency

We only have one planet Earth. Can we apply our collective knowledge and action to sustain it?

Many of us are acutely feeling the impact of environmental threats—from climate change to mining; pollution to water scarcity. What environmental challenges do you face most urgently in your part of the world? How does environmental degradation personally affect you and those around you?

We seek stories that explore the causes and effects of environmental issues and also contain ideas for action. There are stories all around us that point the way to progress. Let’s make these stories visible.

What positive steps are you seeing in your community? Are you part of an environmental movement or campaign? Have you made a personal resolution to take action for the planet?

Tell us: What does effective environmental action look like to you? Maybe you are pressuring your government to support climate agreements, or you are making individual commitments like reducing waste. Maybe you are educating or organizing your community.

However you envision the path to a sustainable planet, we want to hear your voice. Tell your story to guide global action on the environmental issues that matter most to you.
