If you have more information on the countries below or other countries, as well as other alternatives to initiate action, comment below and OffCrowd will add them to the list.

The news has been devastating. From Australian fires to the flooding in Indonesia, the call for action towards this climate catastrophe is louder than ever.

The information circulating, however, shouldn’t be met with dismay nor should it be made with simply observing eyes. The information should be met with massive action from those capable.

We have compiled links that can enact action towards the countries that are most in need of immediate attention. The call is for those who have the ability and capacity to donate sums of their money to those who can generate local action in their community.

Global Climate Crisis

These are not the only countries affected by the effects brought by rising temperatures and other unnatural weather phenomenons. Besides donating to efforts, you can also contribute by:

Speak Out.
Let your local government units know that collective action needs to be taken in your own towns, such as proper waste management or avoiding the use of single-waste plastic.

Seek alternatives.
Social enterprises are popping up more often recently to address both environmental and social issues. These social enterprises range from daily household purchases to accessories, and even entertainment purchases. Support enterprises that contribute to a greater cause.

Stay informed.
Ignorance and apathy lead to the climate crisis. Counter these by staying informed of what is happening, while being responsible with the verification of the information you take in.
