Welcome to ProtegoTerra!
I created this website to understand climate change, its impacts and the interconnections with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). I wanted to be able to evaluate the science and facts on climate change, the latest (available) data and which practical actions I could take to do my part to secure our future on a stable & resilient planet.
The climate crisis is part of a broad sustainability crisis – a way of living that “does not allow future generations to meet their needs.” Therefore, climate action must be taken in the context of sustainable development if we are to create a better, sustainable future.
This website is my way of sharing what I learn.
We have the solutions to tackle the climate & nature crises and achieve the SDGs by 2030. What is often missing is the courage & political will – caused mainly by people with vested interests using well-developed tactics to oppose and deflect public attention.
Let’s take climate action and create a more sustainable future, together!
I would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians on whose land I live and work: the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. I pay my respect to the Elders of the past, present, and emerging.
