At WorkingAbroad, we believe that volunteering to mitigate climate change is one of the most important activities we can do in our lifetime.
Climate change is considered one of the most severe threats to life on our planet. The social, environmental and economic costs of climate change are already significant and likely to increase over time. WorkingAbroad partners with projects worldwide that are working to slow down and mitigate the impacts of climate change.
As early as the 1800s, experiments began on how CO2 collected in the Earth’s atmosphere. Since then, datasets and technology have advanced to corroborate and reliably prove the theory of human-made global warming.
Today, while many countries have agreed to the Paris Climate Accord, most are nowhere near to achieving their climate goals. Governments and businesses are not moving fast enough to tackle the climate emergency, leaving society with a shared responsibility to collaborate for a safer environment.
WorkingAbroad helps facilitate community action against climate change by supporting place-based projects in regions where environmental protection and restoration are essential to slow global warming. Our workforce of volunteers acts to conserve and restore ecosystems important for CO2 storage and biodiversity, such as forests, wetlands and oceans.
We invite passionate individuals, families, schools and communities to join our volunteer workforce and tackle climate change with us—volunteer on one of our place-based projects to take action against climate change today.
Our founders vet each project partner to ensure they meet our rigorous standards of ethics, effectiveness and professionalism.
