BE THE CHANGE
Join our project in any coastal community and help us scale it up. Come out to any of our restorations in South Florida, or start your own plantings or cleanups with easy instructions from our initial roll out project here. Educate. Collaborate. Amplify. Innovate. We've got this.
Forces of Nature is the youngest organization that has joined businesses and cities and universities across the country to commit to taking action to halt climate change. Check out our commitments here. We are zealous about eliminating emissions, stopping deforestation, and expanding our mangrove forests and reefs to halt sea level rise, foster marine biodiversity, and absorb carbon. We are grateful everyday to the guys on the ground at America Is All In, who had our backs before we knew we needed it, and who paved the way for the leadership America is showing now in taking climate action.
SIGN THE FLORIDA CLIMATE PLEDGE
We, the youth, can be a force of nature to call our business community and elected officials to take concrete action to stop climate change. These are uncertain times as the world navigates the COVID-19 health crisis and we take the measures needed to keep our communities healthy and safe. Following the science with a united effort will flatten the curve to cope with this pandemic. This is the same action necessary to mitigate the climate crisis.
These signatures will be delivered to Governor DeSantis and our State and Federal Senators. Share the pledge on social media.
COVID-19 has taught us that when humanity unites, we can prevail. Unite behind the science. And stay safe. Because there is no Planet B. We all just have to do something. –Will Charouhis
Roots & Shoots is the youth program of the Jane Goodall Institute, created to empower young people to create positive change in their communities. This year, Forces of Nature has taken on a dual goal: get your school, your community, and your city to ban single-use plastics. And get outdoors when it's safe to pick up plastic trash. We're restoring Florida's mangroves, one root at a time, by cleaning up the plastics that prohibit them from growing. With more than 15 million high school students in America, if we each forgo the use of one single-use drink a day, and pick up one piece of plastic trash a day, we can save our planet from over 200 million pieces of plastic a year! So the 1 million mark is a no-brainer. If you're in South Florida, join us at one of our mangrove clean ups in the Florida Mangroves, where cleaning it up restores one of nature's best solutions to halt the impacts of climate change. Check out the Mangrove Science here.
You can sign up for the challenge. And help us scale it up.
COVID-19 has focused us on the need to come together. The pandemic stands as a warning to humanity-we need to take collective action on the climate to protect our future. --Alexandra Blitch
