What is the Climate Action Day about?
Weather extremes and reports of disasters make it clear: Climate change is dramatically picking up speed. At the same time there is a continuing increase in carbon dioxide concentration and other climate-damaging emissions. Scientists make it clear that there is an increasingly urgent need of acting now in order to stabilize our planet Earth in a habitable condition.
It is time for action now!
Young people from all over the world participate in the Climate Action Day
on the 1st of December 2018
The annual UN Climate Conferences are an attempt to find answers to climate change and to limit global warming.
The World Climate Conference 2015 in Paris was a real landmark, as for the first time politicians presented a climate protection treaty that was supposed to apply equally to all participating countries. The central aim of the Paris Agreement is to keep the global temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius.
The 24th World Climate Conference (COP 24) will take place in Poland from the 3rd to the 14th of December under Polish presidency. Diplomats, politicians and representatives of civil society will define steps for the practical implementation of the Paris Protocol of 2015. The intention is to specify uniform rules on how CO2 emissions have to be measured and indicated without offering the possibility to the participating states to falsify the results.
The Climate Action Day is a worldwide movement of young people who are not indifferent to climate change and global injustice. United we are strong for climate protection! We point up alternative opportunities for action and learn from each other.
Become part of this worldwide movement and show the world what young people can achieve. Win friends, acquaintances or your family over to participate in a conscious commitment to environment and climate protection one day or one week in December. Why should we leave it to the politicians to decide on the future of our planet Earth?
