Thanks to @sfccsof for speaking to us today about how parents can best support youth activists working on climate. We were also joined by the ecosocialist workgroup of the DSA Austin to hear about how their efforts combine climate justice and equity issues.
#repost @unep with @make_repost ・・・ Great whales capture carbon from human emissions to an economic value of US$1 trillion, a new study shows 🐋 This happens through accumulating carbon in their bodies during their long lives, some of which stretch to 200 years. When they die, they sink to the bottom of the ocean, taking the carbon with them. Each great whale sequesters around 33 tonnes of carbon dioxide. A tree during the same period only contributes to 3% of the carbon absorption of the whale. Protecting whales is protecting the planet 🐋🌏 #saveourocean#climateaction#cleanseas 📷 @guillepozzi / @unsplash
🍀🌱Aseem Garden 🌱🌿 We are recreating this area within the school into a green space where the kids can grow plants and learn about the beauty of nature. This space will not only allow them to connect to mother nature but also provide them with an area to relax and get some fresh air to clear their minds anytime during the day. 🌿 Moreover, the plantations will be used in cooking their mid day meals, so we make sure all the food they eat is organically grown in their own backyard. 🌏💙 This has been all possible because of your continuous support for our fundraising campaign, we thank you for your engagement in our initiative. 🍃🌿🌱 Follow the link in my bio to be part of this wonderful experience. #green#garden#organic🌲🌲 #weareaseem#climatechange#greenproject#charity#plants#fresh#climateaction#climate
Focus 3 is initiating evidence-based coral restoration. Our coral immunology research can be used to inform global studies of why our coral reefs are dying and how we can stop this! Seeking Survivors is using cutting-edge science and proactive conservation practices. 📸C Schmidt
Do you compost at home? ⠀ ⠀ 🍎 "In 2015, Ontarians generated about 3.7 million tonnes of food & organic waste, which includes food that could have been eaten or repurposed, as well as unavoidable waste, such as food scraps & vegetable peelings. ⠀ 🍌 About 60% of this was sent to landfill.⠀ 🚨 When these valuable materials end up in a landfill, they contribute to climate change.⠀ 🌡 As food and organic waste breaks down in an oxygen-deprived environment, it creates methane, a potent greenhouse gas"⠀ 🌎 Turning food & organic waste into compost can improve soil health, help reduce erosion, and improve water quality. ⠀ 💵 Collecting and recovering 1,000 tonnes of food & organic waste has been shown to generate 60% more GDP and 40% more jobs than disposal.⠀ ⠀ If you compost, you can log this Green Action on our App!⠀ ⠀ Credit to @sustainable.pathways on Instagram for the creepy compost shot!!
