Our world is witnessing a wide change in environment nowadays. 2020 definitely was a restoration of nature, but today the climate change is having a significant impact on ecosystems, communities and our ecosystem.

The climate change can take place due to various activities, and when it happens, the temperature can change dramatically. Due to this reason a lot of changes take place, for instance, it can result in more floods, droughts, intense rain and severe heat waves. Oceans and glaciers have also experienced some changes: oceans are warming and becoming more acidic, glaciers are melting, and sea levels are rising. As these changes frequently occur in future decades, they will likely present challenges to our society and environment.

Every year the mankind witnesses one of the worst phases of mass destruction. The most recent unfortunate example is the British Columbia floods, or the atmospheric river that took away a lot of lives. The intense rains and heavy winds that descended on British Columbia, the Canadian province known for its mountains, coastlines, and majestic forests, forced 17,000 people from their homes, emptying entire towns and inundating farms.

It was the second time in six months that the province had endured a major weather- related emergency, and experts say the two disasters are probably related to changes in the climate.

Climate change is not a future problem- the long lasting impacts of rising temperature and changing precipitation patterns are affecting communities in B.C. and a lot of places in the world as well. It affects the personal health, sense of security, our economy and the environment we live in.

Indigenous communities have been disproportionately impacted by climate change, as they are witnessing the immediate impacts on their territories, traditional foods, medicines and ways of living. Indigenous Peoples have been adapting to changing climates and conditions for countless generations, and Indigenous knowledge systems will have a critical role in ensuring the sustainability of our ecological systems.

The world needs a change. A change to sustain a livable environment and in the words of the United Nations, By changing our habits we can tackle the climate emergency & build a sustainable world. Delivering A Better World.
