In the era of increasing global warming, many environmentalists, politicians, artists, and social workers are trying to create a difference through different channels or methods. Norvergence is an initiative taken by a group of environmentalists to aware people regarding environmental issues and what we can do to tackle it.
Their work got published on 4 renowned websites such as Nation of Change, ESI Africa, The Environmental Blog.org and Environewsnigeria.com.
The published content contains in-depth research about issues like economic impacts of climate change (across the globe), environmental activists being killed globally, psychosocial and mental health impacts of climate change, impacts of climate change in Vietnam (case study) and how education helps to address climate change.
Through its impeccable research, Norvergence has once again shaken up various environmental websites with the following article. Environmentalists at Norvergence after visiting each country individually curated this report.
Norvergence continuously keeps an eye on what leaders, historians, and environmentalists are saying about climate change, global warming, and other environmental issues. At the UN climate change summit, Sir David Attenborough has given a statement regarding climate change. According to him, “Climate change is our greatest threat in thousands of years and if we don’t take the required action, the collapse of our civilization is on the horizon.”

As Norvergence reported earlier also that the meeting of the UN members was called so that the world leaders can talk about the real ways by which they can turn their pledges (which were taken at the 2015 Paris Climate summit) into reality.
Sir David Attenborough is a historian and a former senior manager at the BBC. The team of environmentalists at Norvergence has also written and aware people about his nine natural history documentary series.
Don’t feel sad after reading the title, get up and take a stand in the favor of environmentalists who are fighting for all of us. Norvergence, a social initiative taken by a group of environmentalists request all of you to show your support and ask the government why they are not been able to protect environmentalists?
Norvergence in its article reported that only in 2012, around 147 environmentalists were killed. The situation got worse in 2017 when almost 2017 environmentalists murdered.
Today, Norvergence will remind you about the famous “World Summit on Sustainable Development, Johannesburg-2002”.
The summit included a vast number of delegates from different countries, environmental organizations, citizen groups, and justice associations. Norvergence also made a list of the areas that were addressed and discussed at that summit:
Oceans and Fisheries
The main aim of the summit was to make a global commitment to promote sustainable development. Countries should ensure that the development which comes at the price of natural resources should not exceed a predefined limit.

Norvergence Summarized the Outcomes of the Summit
Many governments agreed to adopt energy sources that are not harmful to nature. On the other hand, Oil producing and exporting countries (OPEC) and the United States opposed the “green sources” due to their personal issues.
Overall, even after 17 years of the summit, we are still not 100 percent committed towards sustainable development. Norvergence hopes that every individual understands his/her responsibility and take suitable actions wherever possible.
