The International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) today launched an innovative campaign to highlight the impact of climate change on human life around the world.

By 2050, 200 million people could be living per year in need of humanitarian assistance as a result of a combination of climate change-induced catastrophes and the socioeconomic effects of climate change.

Prior to this launch the campaign collected more than 100 voices from parishioners, volunteers and activists, including Greta Thunberg and Fridays for Future.

Short video clips tell people about the influence the climate crisis has had on their lives, including the question: “Climate changed me. Will my story change you?”

Ahead of COP26, the user-generated campaign will continue to collect stories collected and published as an e-book.

Greta Thunberg commented on the # ClimateChangedMe campaign:

Covid-19 “s worldwide investments in recovery prove governments can act decisively and vigorously in the face of immediate global threats.

The # ClimateChangedMe campaign also features stories of resilience, and sheds light on the role of Red Cross and Red Crescent relief workers around the world in preparing communities to respond to the risks of climate change.
