Information for Action
Information for Action explains conservation and environmental issues, offering solutions and includes an automated lobbying database to lobby your leaders. An educational resource - articles explaining the environmental issues, maps, graphs, links, and a 'What you can do' section. Humans are destroying a beautiful, living resource. Time is running out for the biodiversity of life that inhabits our planet and for our quality of life. We are dependent on the health of our planet and if it continues to decline, as it has done over the past century, then human health and wellbeing will decline as well. The window of opportunity for us to organise globally to create a sustainable society is open - but it is closing.
The Information for Action website is a powerful tool for internet activism or cyber activism. We invite you to make full use of all its resources to lobby politicians and business leaders. You can make a difference for the environmental issues you are concerned about.
