Climate change is not only an environmental catastrophe, it is an urgent human rights issue that increases inequalities and will create ruin for future generations.

Extreme heat waves, droughts, devastating storms. By not acting urgently we put the very existence of communities across Australia and the globe at risk, especially those already vulnerable, disadvantaged or subject to discrimination.

People depending on the land for their livelihood and 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.
