Climate Week in Action
September 19-23, 2022 marks the 14th year New York City celebrates Climate Week hosted by The Climate Group, which brings together influential leaders in climate action across the business, government, and climate communities, in collaboration with the United Nations General Assembly and the City of New York.
As the team behind Climate Week says, it’s all about “Getting It Done,” and we couldn’t agree more. VidMob stands behind its responsibility to use technology for good. We also take our role as change agents seriously- to influence, inspire, and encourage other businesses to do the same. After all, we’ve been personally motivated by companies like Patagonia, Ben and Jerry’s, and Unilever’s Sustainable Living Brands to name a few.
Below are some of the hardworking nonprofit organizations we’ve recently partnered with who are taking on the enormous responsibility of ending climate change and leading the charge to save our planet:
- Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC): In 2021, we worked with the NRDC to collect 14,166 signatures (40,000 total for the campaign) to protect Canada’s Boreal Forest from continued logging and destruction. In 2022, we kicked off a new project in support of the NY Birds and Bees Protection Act that will prohibit destructive uses of neonicotinoid pesticides, which are linked to harm human health, as well as vast soil and water contamination.
- Players for the Planet: Fighting climate change is a team effort. That’s why we partnered with Players for the Planet this spring in a fundraising campaign to unite athletes and bring lasting and measurable transformation to our planet.
- Recreate Responsibly: Born out of a desire to see people enjoy the outdoors safely at the start of a global pandemic, we collaborated with Recreate Responsibly to develop a set of videos to help them secure 300 new activated members.
- RMI: “We don’t contribute a lot to the overall climate change, but we feel the effects so badly.” TeAnn Thomas of FortisTCI in the Turks and Caicos Islands shared with RMI. We’re proud to partner with RMI, a leader in transforming how we produce and use energy and join their latest fundraising campaign to empower energy independence and renewable energy in the Caribbean.
