Today, in honor of Blog Action Day for climate change, our post will be dedicated to how World Wildlife Fund is acting now for our future. "WWF is participating in Blog Action Day today (15 October 2009). This is an annual event that unites the world's bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day on their own blogs with the aim of sparking discussion around an issue of global importance. This year’s topic is conveniently climate change. Blog Action Day 2009 will be the largest-ever social change event on the web. One day. One issue. Thousands of voices."
Climate change has been a priority for WWF for over 20 years as climate disruption poses a fundamental threat to the vulnerable places, species and people WWF seeks to protect. To adequately slow climate change we urgently must reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. We are leveraging the power of WWF’s network of organizations around the world to build support for the new post-2012 global climate agreement at Copenhagen that is fair, effective and science-based.Read more here.
WWF has also used the power of design to fight climate change. Many of the campaigns that involve WWF contain strong graphics and messages that greatly affect their viewers. WWF has worked hard to promote their causes and grab the world's attention and through the use of many creative minds, they have succeeded. We have found some very effective WWF campaigns and wanted to share them with you today.
Remember that you can take action too!
• Check your lights
• Check your thermostats
• Check your water faucets/showers
• Turn off appliances you are not using
