Roles: Researcher, outreach, communication, and phoning UN member states with us
Project: Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS)
Location: virtual, anywhere in Canada
Parvati.org, is a dedicated all-volunteer group on a mission to swiftly realize the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS) for a healthy world.
Arctic ice that has protected humanity for thousands of years by keeping the Earth cool is melting before our eyes. Meanwhile, corporations and countries position themselves to capitalize on the Arctic’s resources. These risky activities will only destabilize the region even more. The plight of the Arctic is fast becoming a local problem for all of us, wherever we may be.
MAPS is a simple, effective and immediately realizable solution that brings hope. The MAPS Treaty is an addendum to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. It declares the Arctic Ocean off limits to commercialization, industrialization and militarization. Safeguarding the Arctic ice and Arctic Ocean will mitigate the extreme weather events that result in food and water shortages, climate refugees, destabilized societies, poverty, poor health, and loss of educational opportunities for children. In declaring MAPS, world leaders join together to protect humanity as a whole, rather than the commercial interests of a few.
We are looking for people with heart who are willing to do a bit of research, help us with our social media outreach, or have communications skills and/or will help us phone UN member countries. Do you have a few hours a day? Or per week? to make a difference for the earth and take action for climate change.
