Faces of climate change
Millions of people around the world are already suffering from the impacts of the climate crisis, with some 400 extreme weather events every year, about four times as many as in the 1970s.
The impacts of climate change and environmental degradation are occurring earlier and more frequently than predicted, and most disasters in recent years have been climate-related.
More climate-related disasters means the IFRC and our National Societies have been busy adapting to the climate crisis and responding to disasters. The IFRC is declaring the climate crisis a dire humanitarian emergency and we need more volunteers to respond to this emergency.
Individuals can opt to volunteer in the traditional route of signing up to volunteer with their national society.
We’re developing a kit for students to use in their schools. Youth can volunteer by taking concrete action in their schools.
Individuals can choose to make one important behavior change that will be critical in curbing climate change.
