WHAT ARE THE MAIN ENVIRONMENTAL MOVEMENTS?
Greenpeace

It’s not a joke. It is not an exaggeration. Our planet is long overdue for the consequences of our irresponsible behavior towards nature. And while he’s been generous all these years, he’s starting to make his boundaries clear.

According to IPCC research, the current state of our ecosystem puts us on high alert. In just under 10 years, humanity will face an unprecedented global climate catastrophe. An irreversible catastrophe, which will test our survival as a species xnxx.

To fight against this, currently various national and international organizations have sought to do their bit, undertaking conservation and environmental protection initiatives. Do you want to meet them? Today we bring you a list of the most outstanding.

 

7 ORGANIZATIONS LEADING THE ENVIRONMENTAL FIGHT

1. GREENPEACE

Its almost 50 years of foundation do justice to its recognition. After all, when thinking of organizations dedicated to the defense of the environment, we cannot help but think of them.

For years, Greenpeace has fought against climate change, has worked to defend biodiversity and, above all, has waged war against those who hunt whales indiscriminately. It is currently present in 55 countries and has approximately 3 million members worldwide.

 

2.The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)

It may not be as well known by name as Greenpeace, but its power and influence is undeniable. The NRDC currently has just under 3 million active members, in addition to an expert panel of more than 700 scientists, legal scholars, and environmental policy specialists.

Its focus is to safeguard the right of people to breathe clean air and consume clean water, in addition to protecting the most fragile and vulnerable ecosystems on the planet. To achieve this, they work together in environmental lobbying with companies, government groups and even self-managed communities. The idea is to convince these groups to adopt certain measures to take care of the environment.

3.EarthAction

This organization is much younger than the others (it was founded in 1992, within the framework of the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro), it has also made significant contributions, in addition to its large number of members.
Their way of working consists of operating by exerting social pressure on governments and large companies so that they take measures to reduce the environmental footprint of their actions.

7 ORGANIZATIONS LEADING THE ENVIRONMENTAL FIGHT

4.International Pollutant Elimination Network (IPEN)

This global network is currently part of 600 NGOs, with a presence in 124 countries today. Your mission? A planet earth without chemical emissions of polluting agents for the environment.
They intervene in international and national policies in the regulation of industrial activities to make it possible.

5.BRAC

It may not be as well known as Greenpeace or others mentioned below, but its strength in Europe is undeniable. Its main focus is social, supporting less favored groups.
However, the organization is also present and operates on environmental issues, working on projects to fight climate change and guarantee food security.

6.Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI)

Young, yes. Unstoppable in its few years of operation, too. Founded just 10 years ago, the GGGI has worked for years towards an ambitious goal: to lead our planet to absolute decarbonization through inclusive, resilient projects that also guarantee its sustainable growth over time.
Its main activities consist of the movement of private investment capital to lead the states to apply environmental measures.

7.Ecologists in Action

Together we can create a greater impact than apart. For this reason, we close this list not with an NGO, but with a conglomerate of them. More than 300 local and regional organizations in Spain join forces to promote social ecology movements.

To do this, they address the problem from its roots: the consumerist society and the excessive production models of the modern world.

THE MOST FAMOUS ENVIRONMENTALISTS ON THE PLANET

We all know: we live in a world of men. A world where, at least until a few years ago, men were the only ones capable of making a striking change with their voice and actions. However, in this world of men, for many years, there have been incredible women who have dedicated their lives to environmentalism.

The contribution of these women has been significant throughout history with indispensable actions or speeches in the fight to improve and make people aware of natural conservation and the dangers and effects of the climate crisis.

4 ENVIRONMENTALISTS WITH WORLDWIDE INFLUENCE

1. GRETA THUNBERG

GRETA THUNBERG

We start the list with one of the most famous names in the environmental world today: Greta Thunberg. Born in 2003, this 16-year-old girl has managed to make a significant impact thanks to her speech at the 2019 UNICEF Climate Summit.

She started a school strike of her own in 2018, openly expressing her discontent with the current policies in the face of climate change and the impact on her.

Her initiative ‘Fridays for Future’ has inspired millions of children around the world to take a space to debate and propose ideas to face the current environmental crisis of our planet.

2. WANGARI MAATHAI

Although not as mediatic as Greta, Wangari has had a strong impact on the world with the renowned ‘Green Belt Movement’. This project aimed, among other things, to plant thousands of trees throughout Kenya, her native country. Thanks to this she got the nickname “The Tree Woman”.

In 2004 she received the Nobel Peace Prize for her actions in defense of the environment and the search for sustainable development of human activities porno français.

 

3. LOIS GIBBS

LOIS GIBBS

We take a brief trip back in time to 1978 to talk about Lois Gibbs, who not only saved the lives of her children, but hundreds of children in her town. After noticing that her children suffered from numerous illnesses, she set out to investigate the cause. That’s how she discovered that the local school was built on a toxic waste dump.

Her discovery led her to organize strong protests and neighborhood mobilizations, with which she managed to relocate 800 families in danger in the area. In addition, she founded the “Center for Health, Environment and Justice”, an organization dedicated to environmental study. Her actions earned her a Godman Environmental Award.

 

4. Rachel Carson

Rachel Carson

We go even further back, to the beginning of the 20th century, to discover the history of this passionate about marine biology. Academic and environmentalist, she published the best seller known worldwide as ‘Silent Spring’. Her work was a direct call for attention to the indiscriminate use of insecticide, a product that is harmful to the environment and the ozone layer.

Her work gave rise to the creation of the ‘United States Environmental Protection Agency’, an organization that prohibited the use of DDT. Likewise, she was an active environmentalist dedicated to raising awareness of the damage that certain chemicals do to the environment.
