What is Snowball?
Snowball is a climate action charity founded by a small team of people in London. It is part of Climate Giving a registered charity in England and Wales (reg no 1180221). Everyone who works on Snowball currently does so on a voluntary basis, although we hope to be able to pay people for their work in the future.
What is Snowball's mission?
To create a global community of climate action.
We want to put people in the driving seat of climate action - enabling people to come together and fight climate change as part of an exciting and ambitious community. A network of people, around the world, each taking action, with one common goal.
To learn more about what we are trying to do and why, please read our theory of change below.
What can Snowball do for you?
People around the world are worried about climate change. We know it's a big issue that needs urgent action, but it's hard to know what we can do, if it will make any difference and if we're doing it alone.
That's where Snowball comes in!
We want to show you what you can do, what impact it will have and invite you to join others and fight climate change every day, as part of a global community of change makers.
What's the plan?
1. Grow a community of founding members - continually improving the platform to be as effective and exciting as possible.
2. Use volunteers and local ambassadors (please let us know if you'd like to be one!) to find new members all round the world - motivating people to take action on climate change and to encourage other people to join - so our collective impact snowballs day-by-day.
3. Once the community is big enough - run additional, targeted campaigns, every month or two, to encourage action in companies and governments around the world.
Got a question or an idea or want to volunteer? Please - get in touch!
We have a lot of exciting ideas for the future, but we need your help. If you can see something that could be improved or if you have an idea for the future, please tell us.

About the information on Snowball
Information is well researched and verified before publishing on Snowball. We look for reputable sources that provide information that people can trust.
There is a process for how we select suggested actions and how we provide impact guidance.
We believe in the strength and knowledge of the global community over that of a small team, so we also ask people to suggest tools, resources, tips and pros and cons for each action. These are only added to the site once they've been researched and we're confident they will help people to fight climate change.
