Green Cross Australia is the newest player in Australia's environment scene. Our work is vital because it addresses the here and now of climate change, including extreme weather and rising sea levels which put our coastlines and Pacific neighbours at risk.
Preparing for climate change impacts
Scientists predict that the existing level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere will lead to warming and expanding oceans as well as more frequent and more intense floods, fires and storms.
As Australians we love our coast lines, but along with our neighbours in the Asia Pacific, we are on the frontline of rising tides. We can adapt to the challenges ahead by reducing our energy consumption and in doing so leave our children a better world.
How we will use your donations
Green Cross Australia is initiating an active and exciting campaign around emergency volunteering. This campaign will foster a new generation of support from Gen X/Y/Z for the unsung heroes of the SES, Red Cross, St John Ambulance, Surf Lifesaving and Rural Bushfire Brigades. As cyclones intensify here at home and in nearby Pacific and Asian communities, we will need their help more than ever.
With your support, this new generation of volunteers will help Green Cross Australia to rebuild green in disaster affected communities - with solar heating, energy and water efficient appliances, insulation and dual glazing. Right now our US affiliate is hard at work rebuilding a green New Orleans for the victims of Katrina, with support from Brad Pitt who shares our vision.
We are partnering with businesses that share our desire for a better future, to help consumers close the gap between those who want to buy green and those who actually do.
Green Cross Australia is proud to partner with Velocity, as Virgin Blue is one of the first airlines in the world to offer carbon offsets to address greenhouse emissions associated with airline travel. By donating your Velocity Points to Green Cross Australia, your support will help us to protect our communities and reduce greenhouse emissions.
