Our Endeavors is an online platform documenting people's endeavors across the world in tackling climate change, and inspire others!



Climate change is a global issue. By that statement, it means that the climate change needs to be intervened collectively. The efforts towards climate change needs to involve as many people as possible. In this context to involve people in this endeavors, first we need them to be fully aware and inspired. Many studies suggested that the approach to communicate this climate issue needs to be personalized, so that they would feel the importance to take actions against climate change. They also highlighted the importance to focus on the positive side of what we could do for this issue, rather than just blame ourselves as the actor behind this problem. In this case, sharing stories of personal endeavors of to tackle climate change counts as an effective way to inspire others as many people across the world have been contributing to many meaningful efforts for this issue.

Therefore, “Our Endeavors” project aims to document people’s efforts to combat climate change by sharing stories and experiences of actions you had taken. By making this an online platform (in a form of website), the stories then will be able to be shared thoroughly across the world to encourage actions to tackle climate change. This approach could be regarded as a positive approach, focusing on showing people’s actions on climate change to inspire and empower others—those who care about this issue and have the willingness to start to take actions.

Who will take these actions?

Everyone that has a story of taking actions related to climate change can contribute to Our Endeavors. Our outline platform enables people to share their experience on taking actions to combat climate change to inspire others to take actions, it would also become a positive guidance for those who sympathize about this issue and have no idea how to start taking actions for climate change. We would also partner with environmental organizations and stakeholders to participate in Our Endeavors by sharing stories of efforts they had taken.
