Over 2 million Avaaz members are calling on world leaders to champion a Global Deal For Nature that protects and restores at least 50% of the planet. Thousands of us have also written heartfelt letters to 10 key world leaders who can be heroes for nature and champion 50% protected locally and globally.
These letters, sent in 14 languages, have been turned into personalized books which are being hand-delivered to world leaders. Explore the books below -- each book is one of a kind, with specific messages to world leaders from their countries, regions and the world. And learn more about our science backed 50/50 vision here.
Avaaz Delivers the Books to World Leaders:
The Avaaz movement already delivered the books in person to the President of Colombia and the Prime Minister of Canada. We are now working on the next deliveries across the globe.
Avaaz petition to world leaders:
"We global citizens are deeply concerned by scientists warning that ecosystems critical to sustaining life on Earth could collapse in our lifetimes.
We call on you to meet existing targets to protect biodiversity, forge a new agreement so that at least 50% of our lands and oceans are protected and restored, and ensure our planet is completely sustainably managed.
This must take into consideration the needs of human development and have the active support of indigenous peoples. This long-term goal for nature can restore harmony with our home."
