We only have 9 years. The whole world must reduce carbon emissions now. And prevent global warming from becoming a global catastrophe. A catastrophe creating human suffering on an unimaginable scale.
It’s not too late if we all take urgent action together.
During COP 26, hundreds of thousands of people marched through cities. And they signed petitions. All to get world leaders to act to prevent a catastrophic global temperature rise.
The UK Government, hosts of the COP, promised action on "coal, cars, cash and trees". But, as Greta Thunberg said, "our leaders are not leading."
The government’s promises are worthless unless they get to work. Right now.
Young people are stepping up to the challenge”
Elizabeth Wathuti, climate activist, Kenya.
The climate crisis is affecting us all. But it’s hitting some communities worse. And it’s the people who’ve done the least to cause it who are suffering the most.
We’re standing with communities as they speak out for their right to a greener, fairer future. And supporting them with the resources they need to survive and thrive.
This is so anyone can access the support needed to recover from extreme weather. Such as clean water on tap during a drought, or house insurance to help rebuild after homes are destroyed by floods.
