NOOR Urges Action on Climate Emergency


NOOR supports the Global Climate Strike that will take place on September the 20th and encourages everyone to join the movement.


NOOR dedicates September to our Environment

For more than a decade, NOOR Authors have documented our growing climate crisis caused by fossil fuel production and material consumption along with the political forces enabling this planetary catastrophe. Through our work we have also pointed to solutions to help ensure sustainable human presence on this planet. The need for action is urgent.

As world leaders meet in New York City next month and climate actions are planned world wide, we will dedicate the month of September to sharing stories on the environment from our archive and works in progress. Please follow these stories on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

We encourage our media partners, researchers, and our community to do the same.
