The Climate Center (er, I mean Centre)
Yes, we have an international Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre. Their mission is to support projects aimed at reducing the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events on vulnerable people. (It’s spelled “centre” because it’s a global effort based in the Netherlands where they like to spell things all cool like that. For more from the American Red Cross on these efforts, read the position paper released last year.)
Projects like planting trees to prevent landslides in Korea serve dual purposes – improving the environment while helping to avert disasters.
We all know that saving the world starts at home. That’s why our National Headquarters is hosting an Earth Day Fair.
We may not be Captain Planet, but we’re hoping that with all these efforts combined we can make a difference.
