You can help cut carbon

The world is about to sign up to a 100% clean energy future!

About carbon

Greenhouse gases threaten to change the climate in dangerous ways we can’t predict. A carbon footprint is historically defined as “the total sets of greenhouse gas emissions caused by an organization, event, product or person.” Greenhouse gases can be emitted through transport, land clearance, and the production and consumption of food, fuels, manufactured goods, materials, wood, roads, buildings, and services.

What can we do?

The impact of pollution on the environment is scary enough to have the government gunning to slash carbon emissions. However, the goal to completely cut carbon is at risk at the Lima climate talks. Climate Ministers from 195 countries are arriving at the global summit in Peru. Our governments are about to set a goal to cut carbon pollution completely, putting us on a path to 100% clean energy. This target is now in the draft Global Climate Agreement, but it is at risk because oil, coal and fracking companies and countries that want to keep polluting are lobbying hard to pull this crucial target from the text. Let’s show them this commitment is non-negotiable.

Supporting Avaaz

Phoenix Rising For Children (PRFC) is an accredited out-of-home or foster care provider based in the Sydney greater metropolitan area and Hunter Central Coast of N.S.W, Australia. PRFC was founded in 2001 to provide quality foster care to children and young people in N.S.W, including contemporary, quality, family-based foster care and effective and specialist support services to children and young people and their families. PRFC operates ethically, effectively and empathically with a view to achieving quality outcomes and a satisfying working environment, and as such we support organisations that encompass similar ideals.

Have you considered fostering a young one? PRFC undertakes regular planning and evaluation and has a focus on personal development and training. We are always interested in hearing from those passionate about making a meaningful difference for a child in foster care or a family requiring assistance. If you would like to become a foster carer and join our team providing effective and meaningful care to children and young people, please contact us!

We also provide family contact services, and these specialize in contact supervision for children in out of home care with their parents and other significant family members.

We can be reached at mail@phoenixrising.org.au

How can we help?

People power forced through this crucial goal, now we have to protect it! If we don’t, scientists are clear — catastrophic and runaway climate change is inevitable. Our best chance of blocking back-room deals with polluters is bombarding our Ministers with thousands of messages.

If enough of us act, they’ll know they’re being watched and expected to stand strong for the goal of 0 carbon, and 100% clean energy. The Avaaz team is on the ground and will ensure each country’s delegate and media know how many messages have been sent per country, and our messages could even be projected onto screens right in the conference hall and hand delivered to Ministers.
