“You say you love your children above all else, and yet you are stealing their future in front of their very eyes.”

- Greta Thunberg, Amnesty International’s Ambassador of conscience, and founder of Climate School Strike

 

Their land is slowly sinking. In Tuvalu, an archipelago in the middle of the Pacific ocean, two islands have almost been swallowed by the rising sea level. The other islands could become inhabitable in the next 50 years.

Extreme heat waves, droughts, devastating tropical storms. Climate change is not only an environmental catastrophe, it is an urgent human rights issue that will increase inequalities and create ruin for future generations.

By not acting urgently we put the very existence of communities across the globe at risk, especially those already vulnerable, disadvantaged or subject to discrimination. Indigenous communities, often living in fragile ecosystems will be dangerously impacted.

Why is climate change a human rights issue?

The devastating effects of climate change are threatening our very own well-being and existence: our rights to life, to food and water, to housing, to safety....

Future generations will experience its most acute severe consequences but its impact is already being felt right now. During the last decade, we have witnessed extreme weather events displacing people and sparking conflicts in places where livelihoods are jeopardized.

Make a regular donation today to join the fight for our future. The lives of our children depend on people’s actions today.

We all live on this planet together and we are all responsible for caring for it. 

That is why Amnesty is pushing for accountability from states and companies which fail to act on climate change, just as we do with other human rights violations.

And as we have done for many years, we will keep supporting and protecting environmental rights defenders who work to save their land against climate impacts, extraction of fossil fuels and deforestation.

We’re 100% independent and always will be

Amnesty doesn’t accept funding from governments or political organisations. This financial independence means we’re free to campaign with objectivity and impartiality and to defend human rights worldwide.

All donations of $2 and over are tax deductible in Australia.
