Rotary Climate Action Team Network 

The Global Climate Pledge is proudly partnered with the Rotary Climate Action Team Network (RCAT). A safe and stable environment in the future is necessary for Rotary to continue to make progress in the 7 Areas of Focus.

The Rotary Climate Action Team Network offers Rotary    clubs resources to:

  2. Educate Rotarians about the climate crisis
  3. Share projects and contacts
  4. Link to multiple resources across Rotary

Join the RCAT Network by creating a Climate Action Team 

We invite you to create a Climate Action Team in your club.

Climate Change and Peace

Climate change is one of the most persistent and exponentially growing threats to peace and security in our century. On a global scale, climate change affects all areas of peace building social conflict, large-scale migration, security, and development.

Climate Change is widely accepted to be a “threat multiplier” of existing risks. For example it can intensify political instability by putting extra stress due to depletion in resources, financial losses, migration and more. And the most vulnerable are at the highest risk of being affected.
