It’s an unjust reality that the millions of people now living with the impact of climate change are the least responsible for causing it.

On 13 March, we’re asking the people of Ireland to Go Green for Concern.

Green jumpers, green cakes, green nails, green shoes – no matter how green you go, the money you raise will help transform communities affected by climate change.

Together, we will stand tall to end extreme poverty, whatever it takes.

Why Go Green?

Across the globe, droughts and floods have almost doubled since the early 1990s. In the 25 countries we work in, climate change is having a significant impact on vulnerable communities.

Whether it be the Sahelian zones of Chad and Niger, or the flood plains of Bangladesh, many communities rely heavily on farming, fishing and livestock-rearing for their livelihood, but with the planet heating up each year, more and more of these communities struggle to grow or find food and find themselves back on the poverty line.

Climate change is one of the key drivers for the recent rise in global hunger.

We’re working with communities to withstand the damage already being caused by climate change and help build resilience for the future.

By going Green for Concern you can support us to reach more people on the front line of the climate crisis. A greener world has never been so important!
