Protecting our Environment
The environment is a major concern for communities and people around the world. During the last century alone, the world lost more than 80 percent of its original forests, which provide a source of livelihood, protection from natural disasters and absorb carbon dioxide emissions that lead to global warming.
Lions have an opportunity to bring attention to the environment and show the strength of our worldwide network during a special service action campaign, “Protecting our Environment.”
Protect the Environment to benefit 25 million people and be part of the Centennial Service Challenge!
During April, we invite your club to join Lions around the world to protect the environment. Help us raise awareness on the importance of protecting the environment in connection with Earth Day. Or, organize hands-on projects throughout the month that mobilize your club members to improve your community’s environment.
