OUR WORLD IS ON THIN ICE.
THE ARCTIC OCEAN IS OUR WORLD’S LIFE SUPPORT.
It regulates the global weather so that we can grow the food crops and access the fresh water we all need to survive.
BUT THE ICE IS MELTING AND THE WATERS ARE WARMING.
What was once our planet’s air conditioner is turning into a simmering kettle. Our source of sustenance is fading away.
A CRISIS POINT
We’re making things worse. With oil and gas exploration, commercial shipping and fishing, military activity, tourism, and dumping, we’re assaulting the Arctic Ocean when it most needs our help.
THERE’S ANOTHER WAY:
GO ARCTIC FREE
MAPS, the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary, keeps these exploitative activities out of the Arctic Ocean—for good.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
Our survival is in our hands.
If you want a future, join us and take a stand now.
Speak up. Be heard.
Sign the MAPS petition to call on your government to commit to Arctic Free.
WHAT YOUR COMPANY CAN DO
Companies are invited take action for a healthy future by joining the Arctic Free Pledge.
“How many more people will we allow to burn, to drown, to starve, or to die of disease before we commit to the action we urgently need to survive? All life everywhere depends on Arctic sea ice. Its loss is already causing a chain reaction of suffering worldwide, affecting the safety and food security of multiple millions. We need MAPS now. Demand action for a healthy world by going Arctic Free.”
Parvati Foundation Founder, CEO and visionary for MAPS
“The oceans are not only rich in biodiversity, but also play a major role in regulating temperatures: we continue harming and polluting them at our peril. It is thus hugely important to establish the proposed Sanctuary for preserving the unique Arctic flora and fauna and thus helping to slow down climate change at this critical time.”
– Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE
UN Messenger of Peace, Ocean Elder
“As a global community, we have a responsibility to defend the Arctic. World leaders have a responsibility to sign the MAPS Treaty and create that protected zone for our generation, and for every generation to come. A lot of what we fight for when it comes to climate justice is the protection of the Arctic because of the global implications if our ice caps melt. Now, more than ever, is the time to get the world on board with protecting the Arctic and with supporting MAPS.”
