Every year, we are losing 369 billion tons of snow and ice. Over the past 100 years, global sea level has raised nearly 178 mm. Carbon dioxide levels in the air are at its highest in 650,000 years. Above stats are enough for us to realize that we as humans are just feeding our capitalism need and completely ignoring the mother Earth.
Norvergence is an initiative taken by a team of conservationists to create awareness among the global population about the consequences of melting ice caps/glaciers, rising sea levels, etc. It also works to ensure sustainable livelihoods and conserve biodiversity.
Through this website, the team highlights the top reasons and consequences of global warming. It further briefly describes how this complex shift in earth’s climate has led to a series of deadly natural disasters:
- Hurricane Irma
- East Africa Drought
- South Asian Floods
- Hurricane Harvey
- Earthquakes in Chile and Haiti
Norvergence also focuses on the impact of global warming on marine species and ecosystem. Fishes, seabirds, and other marine animals are facing problems such as loss of breeding grounds, high level of moralities, and mass migration.
There is no doubt that addressing climate change will require many tough solutions. Some of these solutions practically exist while the other ones hinge on humans changing the way we make or consume energy.
We at Norvergence believe that education is the most important part of the global response to climate change. We are committed to spreading awareness regarding global warming across the world.
Norvergence provides a strong framework to promote global consciousness through projects and partnerships in an order to encourage participation of different ages.
The team at Norvergence helps people
- Understand the whole concept of climate change.
- Increase climate literacy.
- How to adapt to climate change trends.
- Increase mitigation capacities of communities.
- Spread awareness about sustainable lifestyles.
- Participation in civil societies.
Purposes and Objectives of Norvergence
- Expand the scientific knowledge and research on the social impacts of climate change and to empower people by involving them in the decision making process.
- Educate people about the sustainable use of natural resources.
- Boosting resilience (as a new initiative) in the flood-prone coastal towns and regions facing more droughts and wildfires.
