    Goals / Remit

    Avaaz empowers millions of people from all walks of life to take action on pressing global, regional and national issues, from corruption and poverty to conflict and climate change. Avaaz’s model of internet organising allows thousands of individual efforts, however small, to be rapidly combined into a powerful collective force. By signing up to Avaaz emails, members are rapidly alerted to urgent global issues and opportunities to achieve change. The Avaaz community campaigns in 17 languages, served by a core team on 6 continents and thousands of volunteers. Avaaz takes action -- signing petitions, funding media campaigns and direct actions, emailing, calling and lobbying governments, and organizing "offline" protests and events -- to ensure that the views and values of the world's people inform the decisions that affect humanity.

    Complementary Information

    Avaaz had approximately 49 team members that worked on the activities described in the box above in 2021. 22 of these people spent approximately 15% of their time on the listed activities and 27 spent on average approximately 5% of their time on such activities. The FTE is therefore approximately 5 persons, represented above as the rough equivalent of 25% of 19 people's time because the data entry system for this form is based on a rigid formula that does not reflect our current circumstances.
