Become a climate activist!

The climate has changed and the risks are rising: now we need to rise up too. The climate crisis is not something that will happen in the future. It is happening right now, so we need to act right now. Will you join us?

Make a vital behaviour change

Change begins with you! Chances are that if you’re reading this page, you’re interested in doing something – but you might not know where to begin. Great news: we’ve boiled down concrete actions you can take as an individual to end the climate crisis.

Volunteer with your local Red Cross or Red Crescent society

Much of the work our humanitarian organization does is either directly or indirectly affected by the climate crisis.

If you volunteer with your local Red Cross or Red Crescent, you are volunteering to end the climate crisis!

Our vision
Ambitions to address the climate crisis
Climate change is a humanitarian emergency. Today, one weather- or climate-related disaster occurs every 1-2 days, with an estimated 108 million people needing life-saving assistance in 2018. This number could double by 2050. The people who suffer the most are – and will continue to be – the world’s poorest: those who do not have the resources to protect themselves from disasters and who, more often than not, live in areas where climate impacts like floods, droughts and storms hit hardest.

Our reports
The cost of doing nothing

How many people could be in need of humanitarian support following climate-related disasters by 2030 and 2050 if the world does not urgently invest in climate adaptation measures today? And what could the financial cost be for governments and donors supporting an already overstretched humanitarian system?
