Environmental Sustainability and Climate Action

Hope for the Vulnerable Children and the Environment

Climate change is a crisis for all, but the most vulnerable usually bear the brunt of it. As a child-focused agency, World Vision aims to address some of the most pressing climate threats by restoring the natural environment and working towards climate justice in order to create a thriving environment for children and the future generations to come.
