Join with Greenpeace for a pollution-free world

What’s happening?

After centuries of burning the planet’s coal, oil and gas supplies and destroying vast areas of forests and peatlands, we now know that carbon pollution is pouring into the atmosphere and altering the delicate balance of life on Earth. Burning coal is the single biggest contributor to climate change. It produces a third of the world’s carbon pollution. The impacts of climate change are being felt today. Average global temperatures have risen every decade since the 1970s, and 2013 tied as 7th warmest year since 1880.

It is clear what needs to be done and when – what is missing is the will to do it. Governments around the world have a responsibility to protect the planet and its inhabitants. They must drastically reduce domestic carbon pollution, foster investment in large-scale renewable energy projects, protect forests and commit to a fair, ambitious and biding global climate agreement.

Greenpeace’s efforts

Greenpeace is an independent campaigning organisation that uses non-violent direct action to expose global environmental problems and to force solutions which are essential to a green and peaceful future. Greenpeace’s cornerstone principles and core values are reflected in all their environmental campaign work, worldwide. They ‘bear witness’ to environmental destruction in a peaceful, non-violent manner, they use non-violent confrontation to raise the level and quality of public debate, in exposing threats to the environment and finding solutions they have no permanent allies or adversaries, they ensure our financial independence from political or commercial interests, they seek solutions for, and promote open, informed debate about society’s environmental choices.

Supporting Greenpeace

Phoenix Rising For Children (PRFC) is an accredited out-of-home or foster care agency providing services in Sydney, including the greater metropolitan areas, Central Coast and parts of the Hunter region of NSW, Australia. PRFC was founded in 2001 to provide quality foster care to children and young people in NSW, 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.
