Lobsang Yangtso escaped from Tibet by climbing over the Himalayas when she was just 9 years old.
Today, she's an environment and climate crisis expert with a Ph.D. And she's terrified about what is happening in her Tibetan homeland, where ice is melting 3x faster than anywhere else on the planet. As home to a glacier that provides water for 1 in every 5 people on Earth...we should all be terrified.
Lobsang wants to sound the alarm at the critical COP27 climate conference in Egypt, just a week away. But the high cost of attending means she and other front-line activists and experts are scrambling to scrambling to ensure they can take part -- leaving the fossil fuel lobby to control the narrative and stop real action.
We can change that -- if thousands of us chip in, our community can send Lobsang to meet our leaders...and fund campaigning for real climate impact at the conference and beyond. Can you chip in to help?
