There are a number of things you can do to help Takuu and to help the planet.
If you want to help Takuu directly you can make a donation to our Takuu Fund Paypal account. Briar March and Lyn Collie are both authorised to collect donations on behalf of the community. 100% of anything you give will go direct to Takuu’s Council of Elders for use on projects nominated by the people of Takuu.
Make a commitment to some commonsense changes in behaviour. Rather like getting fit and healthy, the little things can make a difference.

There are a growing number of NGOs who work hard to draw the attention of the world’s decision-makers to the issue of climate change. Little changes by responsible citizens need to be accompanied by large changes by big organisations like governments and multinational corporations. We like Oxfam who have a presence in Bougainville, and are intensely aware of the growing problems in the Pacific region, and Greenpeace who have lobbied exceptionally hard leading up to the Copenhagen climate change talks.
If association with a charity or activist group is not your cup of tea, try writing to your MP or congressman, or your local newspaper. Next time you have the opportunity, consider voting for the party or politician in your area who has a good plan for dealing with climate change. Talk to your friends about the issue. Come and see our movie! There are lots of options.
