It is not enough to preach climate action,

we need to act to reach climate ambition.

"Fighting climate change is not about having one destination in sight;

it’s a constant process of making the right decisions for the future and having the courage to act on them”

Inputs from individuals, environmental organizations and educational institutions have been brought together with the expertise of our policy teams to highlight the most indispensible action points to tackle the ongoing climate crisis.

IPCC: The Working Group I contribution to the Sixth Assessment Report, Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis.

Scientists are observing changes in the Earth’s climate in every region and across the whole climate system, according to the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report. 

The report provides new estimates of the chances of crossing the global warming level of 1.5°C in the next decades, and finds that unless there are immediate, rapid and large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, limiting warming to close to 1.5°C or even 2°C will be beyond reach.

POLICY

IPCC Special Report: Global Warming of 1.5 ºC 

An IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways, in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to eradicate poverty.

This Summary for Policymakers presents the key findings of the Special Report, based on the assessment of the available scientific, technical and socio-economic literature relevant to global warming of 1.5°C .

Today, we are fearful, isolated, and threatened, but through these past few weeks of adjusting to COVID-19, and the few years of responding and acting to the climate crisis, and our experience organising for climate action, we have learned to be hopeful, connected and resilient. .
