- Threaths That Impact The Earth. -

A global catastrophic risk is a hypothetical future event that could damage human well-being on a global scale, even endangering or destroying modern civilization.

- And What Can Be Done. -

Support organisations!

World Wildlife Fund's work addresses direct and indirect threats - and the forces that drive them - to conserve biodiversity and reduce humanity's ecological footprint.

Doomsday Clock is a design that warns the public about how close we are to destroying our world with dangerous technologies of our own making.

The Global Challenges Foundation aims to promote the development of global decision-making models capable of more effectively and equitably mitigating and, preferably, eliminating the major global catastrophic risks threatening humanity.

World Health Organization's mission is to transform the future of public health.

NASA's Earth Science Division (ESD) missions help us to understand our planet's interconnected systems, from a global scale down to minute processes.

Wildlife Conservation Society - aims to protect the wildlife and wild places we all care about.

Environmental organizations - a long list by Wikipedia.

Make better choices!

- As a consumer, make an effort to learn about products and their life cycles to make a better choice - if not always, as often as possible.

- Recycle, reuse, recreate, give your old outdated things to someone who likes them now. It is not more environmentally sustainable to own less things if it means that you often throw away the ones you already have to buy new ones.

- Buy less but good quality, and pay more for the work, design and environmental care, use less resources.

- When possible: walk, bike, use public transport instead or your own car. Share a car, or pay for a daily lift. Work from your home. Think before travelling.

- Use less energy and water. Set a lower room temperature to use less energy for heating, live in a smaller space and/or use eco friendly heating and care for your house. Turn off unnecessary electronic devices.

- Eat less meat.

- Be sensible, don't throw the garbage on roads, parks and public places. Or, of course, in nature. Always use the dustbins when available, otherwise carry it with you from wilderness to civilization. Recycle bottles, cans, paper, plastic and cardboard when possible.

- Volunteer locally, in Finland or The Bahamas or where you are now.

- Prevent the spreading of pandemic diseases. Follow given instructions when sensibly possible.
