Looking for petitions for environmental protection, sustainability, animal welfare and social justice? Then this overview is just right for you. Petitions are more than just signature collections! They educate people and generate a steadily increasing awareness for social grievances and ecological challenges of our time.
Here I would like to introduce you to the sustainable petitions that I have signed and am happy to share with you and other readers. On the one hand, because I represent them 100 percent with my personal values. And on the other hand, because their target projects protect animals and the environment and make our coexistence fairer and more sustainable.

Please sign the petitions and share them with other people to inform our society about existing grievances and to get them out of the world.
I know, I know: there are countless petitions that deserve support. So I'd like to give you a chance to add to that list here. Can you think of other petitions for environmental protection and sustainability that all other readers and I should sign? Then let me know in the comments. If I can represent the goal of the petition with my values as well, I'll be happy to share it here with our community, of course.
