New Friends: Bali Fokus Joins 350.org
i'm excited to welcome our newest partner to the 350.org campaign: BaliFokus.
BaliFokus works to protect and improve the environment on the island of Bali, Indonesia. As a low-lying island in a developing nation, Bali is vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
As the staff at BaliFokus wrote in a recent report, "Climate change represents an enormous threat for developing countries such as Indonesia. Poverty, along with the terrible inﬂuence it plays upon human life, is expected to exacerbate with the impact of climate change, requiring more than simply aid in funds to improve it."
BaliFokus is working to address climate change and other environmental challenges through education and sustainable development projects, including wastewater treatement and waste management programs.
A big welcome to all of the staff at BaliFokus -- we look forward to working together over the coming year to build this global movement for a sustainable future!
