VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Roles: Researcher, outreach, communication, and phoning UN member states with us
Project: Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS)
Organization: Parvati.org
Location: virtual, anywhere in Canada

About Us:

Parvati.org is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to a healthy world. Our first order of business is creating the world's largest marine protected area in the Arctic Ocean. It is called the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS) and it encompasses the entire Arctic Ocean north of the Arctic Circle. MAPS will keep exploitative interests (offshore oil and gas, international shipping, deep sea mining, etc.) out of the Arctic Ocean so that the polar ice, which stabilizes the homes, food, and water supplies of all life on Earth, can regenerate. MAPS is a simple, effective and immediate solution to the crisis of the rapid loss of ice and shifting weather patterns. It compels a global pivot to renewable energies and a paradigm shift from short-term greed to long-term good. And our planet needs it now.

Be part of an international group of dedicated volunteers who know we are all in this together.
