Understanding our Planet

It is not enough that humans have inherited Earth for as long as we have, but that we endeavor to pollute the planet and destroy natural resources to the point that future generations will not enjoy the life we have built for them. Avaaz is an organization that is committed to helping bring about recognition and awareness to the issues that plague our planet.

Founded in January of 2007, Avaaz has promoted global activism. The online activist group supports more than just pollution prevention or the destruction of natural resources. Avaaz also tries to help human rights, animal rights and they even try to be a voice against corruption and poverty.

Avaaz has been more than just a voice in many events that have occurred since the inception of the group. They have supported through bringing other groups together or provided financial assistance to aid communications to support oppressed groups such as the uprising leading up to the Syrian Civil War. The group tries to help bring other activists together and provide a voice against injustice, corruption, pollution, and the protection of things that are good for the world.

Avaaz uses online petitions to start campaigns that strategically align with the mission of the organization. Those petitions build up to create the needed movement toward the campaign allowing funds, group organization, or greater awareness to help move that cause forward. The petitions are not just for large global events. They try to tackle local, national or international issues. The organization has over 44 million members around the world that try to share one voice with Avaaz.

Avaaz is a voice for those who want to bring change to the world and help make the future a better place to live. It is an organization dedicated to protecting humans, and animals around the globe.
