Avaaz is an advocacy group that also raises funds and hosts petitions for many causes. Founded in 2007 they mainly focus their efforts on climate issues, corruption, animal and human rights. Unlike previous international groups they maintain a large base of members and its staff provide summarized arguments for supporting several different causes in an easy to understand way. They are dedicated to their members and do a yearly survey to choose their top initiatives and among those this year are Save the Seas and Breaking Monsanto’s Grip, summarized below.
In the past year Avaaz and their members have made great strides towards their goal of thwarting Monsanto. They submitted the petition against glyphosate (Roundup) with over two million signatures to EU representatives. Glyphosate has been linked to cancer in recent UN studies, and Monsanto is in hot water legally in the US with a massive class action suit. In the EU it required a renewal of its license to be sold to non professionals- and Avaaz along with members contacting their own governments it was a successful pursuit with their license denied to the joy of many.
With the force of Avaaz they’ve made strides towards their Saving the Seas Initiative starting in the UK in 2010. With a massive effort from Avaaz, the UK set aside a large amount of protected marine zones throughout its territories. Many experts in marine biology believe that this in addition to reducing waste dumped in the ocean. The Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument which is a marine reserve that doubled the amount of protected ocean world wide was approved just a few years later after another monumental effort by members. Just last year they had caught wind of another possible marine reserve off the coast of Hawaii. Another large rallying cry coordinated by Avaaz and they’ve added yet another marine reserve to their goal: to have 30% of our oceans protected by 2030.
