Background of Stop Climate Change Project

Situation of climate change has been so far recognized as one of the most crucial global problems. In fact, many people and organizations have been working hard to overcome the situation. However, the global carbon emission keeps increasing (21 billion tons in 1990 to 29 billion in 2009 while our planet can absorb only 10 billion in its nature). Moreover, the damage is getting more and more serious on landscape, forests and its biodiversity. Also in food production and water supply, human security and the list goes on.

Although the recent COP21 has agreed on global goals, we need much further efforts and collaboration among countries, stakeholders, organizations and people to prevent increase of global temperature within 1.5-2 degrees. Furthermore, innovative, epoch‐making actions and cooperation need to be created and developed in order to have breakthrough to protect our beautiful planet for the future generations. Thus, we see one of which can be international voluntary service.
