Take a Stand Against Climate Change

Sphere: Related Content

Two days ago I was blogging about Climate Change for Blog Action Day. Yesterday and today I have blogged about the Stand Up End Poverty Day and other related events. The United Nations Foundation sent an article that combines both.

UN Foundation

This weekend, October 16 to 18, millions of people around the world will join forces through a variety of events to draw attention to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and call upon world leaders to implement solutions now.

Stand Up against Climate Change

Established by the UN in 2000, the MDGs outline eight critical global goals -- including environmental sustainability -- and provide a roadmap for worldwide progress by 2015. But the climate crisis threatens to undo much of the progress made so far, especially with regard to poverty reduction. Agricultural production in the developing world will face even greater challenges, and that could spell disaster for the poorest and most vulnerable among us.

When you submit your climate change story on October 16, 17, or 18, it will count as an action for Stand Up.

Add your climate change story to the board now, and have your action count!

Even better: Help us spread the word! Test your MDG knowledge with our quiz and then share it with friends and family.
