Make a Pledge for Change
You have the power to fight climate change and support climate justice for people with and without disabilities in your own life, your community and even the world! You can reduce your impact on the environment and the atmosphere by changing your transportation habits, energy use, what you consume and how you throw things away. You can also increase your own climate resilience by, for example, putting together a disaster readiness plan. And you can impact your community and the world by becoming an activist, whether that’s through calling your legislators or joining a climate justice or disability rights group.
Use the form below to make one or more pledges for how you will change your life and/or the world (the more the better!). We’d also love to share your story to encourage others to join the effort – just let us know if that’s okay by using the checkbox at the bottom of the form!

Share Your Pledge and Your Plans
SAVE THE PLANET,
YOU can make a difference!
Every action can help when done collectively.
To preserve a livable climate, greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced to net zero by 2050. Bold, fast, and wide-ranging action needs to be taken by governments and businesses. But the transition to a low-carbon world also requires the participation of citizens -- especially in advanced economies.
Every one of us can help limit global warming and take care of our planet. By making choices that have less harmful effects on the environment, WE can be part of the solution and influence change.
