Our December 2022 Monthly Newsletter is out now, so make sure to check out the latest activities and opportunities to engage with us here!
Warmest wishes for a joyous holiday season and a happy New Year! We hope you are thriving and winding down for 2022 – there’s plenty of time to reenergize and galvanize action for 2023.
2022 was certainly a better year in terms of getting Covid-19 in hand, producing plenty of positive environmental action, and returning to in person events such as CitiesAlive in October. But continued shootings, recent international events against women and our own U.S. Supreme Court rulings have placed society 50 years backwards instead of propelling us forward. Standing up for our beliefs and voting are the keys to creating a future livable and sustainable world for fauna, flora, and humans. We all deserve to be safe.

There will also be targets for protecting vital ecosystems such as rainforests and wetlands and the rights of indigenous peoples. Biodiversity refers to all the Earth’s living things and the way they are connected in a complex web of life that sustains the planet,” (BBC News).
