Protect Restore Fund – Act Now

Protect Restore Fund – Act Now.

It is still not too late to act. It will take a far-reaching vision, it will take courage, it will take fierce, fierce determination to act now, to lay the foundations where we may not know all the details about how to shape the ceiling. In other words, it will take cathedral thinking. –Greta Thunberg

Protect. Restore. Fund.
Climate activists Greta Thunberg and George Monbiot talk about solutions to the problem of anthropogenic global warming:

a combination of leaving fossil fuels in the ground and protecting and restoring living ecosystems like

forests, mangroves, swamps and seabeds that can pull enormous quantities of carbon from the air and store them safely, naturally.

Current government subsidies around the world enhance the use of fossil fuel.

Thunberg and Monbiot advocate for the increase in funding for natural climate solutions so that we can protect and restore the environment for future generations to come.

Thunberg and Monbiot, walk their talk. Likewise, this film was made with the smallest environmental impact possible.

“We took trains to Sweden to interview Greta, charged our hybrid car at Georges house, used green energy to power the edit and recycled archive footage rather than shooting new,”

Tom Mustill of Gripping Films.

Everything we do counts. What will you do?

Protect Restore Fund

Greta Thunberg FRSGS (born 3 January 2003) is a Swedish teenage environmental activist on climate change whose campaigning has gained international recognition.

Thunberg first became known for her activism in August 2018 when, at age 15, she began spending her school days outside the Swedish parliament to call for stronger action on global warming by holding up a sign saying (in Swedish) “School strike for climate”.

Soon, other students engaged in similar protests in their own communities. Together, they organised a school climate strike movement under the name Fridays for Future.

After Thunberg addressed the 2018 United Nations Climate Change Conference, student strikes took place every week somewhere in the world.

In 2019, there were at least two coordinated multi-city protests involving over one million students each.

Thunberg is known for her blunt, straightforward speaking manner, both in public and to political leaders and assemblies,

in which she urges immediate action to address what she describes as the climate crisis.

At home, Thunberg convinced her parents to adopt several lifestyle choices to reduce their own carbon footprint,

including giving up air travel and not eating meat.

Her sudden rise to world fame has made her a leader and a target. In May 2019, Thunberg was featured on the cover of Time magazine, which named her a “next generation leader”

and noted that many see her as a role model.

 Thunberg and the school strike movement were also featured in a 30-minute Vice documentary titled Make the World Greta Again. Some media have described her impact on the world stage as the “Greta Thunberg effect”.

Thunberg has been the recipient of numerous honours and awards, including fellowship of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society, has been named as one of the 100 most influential people of 2019 by Time magazine.

Thunberg was nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize which was ultimately awarded to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali. In September 2019, she addressed the UN Climate Action Summit in New York.
