Avaaz.org is an online global civic advocacy group who aims to ensure that the world's people have a say in global decisions. With hundreds of thousands of members in more than 170 countries, their goal is a powerful coalition of citizens without borders.

Over 400,00 people have already signed the current Avaaz petition seeking binding global emission reduction targets to avert catastrophic climate change, instead of voluntary "aspirational goals" amounting to nothing more than hot air and hope. This petition is to be presented this weekend at the APEC summit in Sydney, Australia. The goal is to collect over half a million signatures calling for action now to prevent a climate disaster.
