MANILA, SEPTEMBER 18, 2019 – TikTok, the leading destination for short-form mobile video, has partnered with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the world’s largest humanitarian network, to launch the #ForClimate challenge, injecting new vitality into IFRC’s #FacesOfClimateChange global initiative. From September 16th to 30th, TikTok users can raise awareness of climate change by using three specially designed stickers depicting extreme weather conditions: Rainstorm, Snowstorm and Global Warming. In addition, TikTok users can also take part in an interactive quiz where they can test their knowledge on environmental protection and share actions they have done to help end the climate crisis. The quiz consists of 15 questions including “”Should plastic bags be banned?” “”Will you buy used goods?” and beyond.

Dr Jemilah Mahmood, IFRC’s Under Secretary General for Partnerships, said: “TikTok’s social platform is perfect for getting a serious message across in a way that’s thrilling, inspiring, and energetic. We’re looking forward to seeing young people bring their stories to a global audience.” Dr. Mahmood also shared her video #ForClimate on TikTok
