As part of Sept. 22's 2019 Social Good Summit, Mashable addresses the climate change issue head-on, highlights the advancement the globe requires, and celebrates the change-making professionals.

With few actionable alternatives, climate change can often feel like an enormous issue. Just look at the facts: July has been recorded as the hottest month. The warmest reported were eighteen of the last 19 years. And in the geological record, the frequency of CO2 rise in the atmosphere is unprecedented.

While it's true that leaders and whole nations hold many of the keys to addressing these problems, there's a easy way to help — through applications.

Not only is your smartphone your link to the globe, it can also be your link to the climate change discussion. Sensitivity and intervention are at your fingertips with these four applications.

1. For the animal lover: WWF Together

The WWF Together app, developed by the World Wildlife Fund, shares with vibrant graphics and amazing video the tales of species affected by climate change. The app provides news and facts about wildlife on livestock like elephants and giant pandas, as well as data about conservation attempts.

You can also use the app to exchange data on social media that you study, followed by a 3D origami picture of the species at risk.
