Join the thousands of people from around the globe taking action on climate change so you too can shape our future.

Why is this important?

Together we are powerful. Working in groups, with organizations or in our communities we can create a world with a safe and stable climate. 

Together we can build cleaner energy systems, better public transport networks and develop sustainable cities and industries. 

Individual and collective actions add up to real change.

How it adds up

The Global climate movement is growing faster and faster each year.

6 million people from around the world took action in September 2019 as part of the Climate Strike and FridaysforFuture rallies, with millions more carrying on the fight since then. (source)

Activists like you taking part in broader movements were able to reject the building of the Keystone XL pipeline by the Obama administration due to various climate movements’ actions. The pipeline was to carry tar sands oil, a highly explosive and toxic substance to life when it leaks from pipelines. It would also have bolstered the Oil and Gas industry’s production of tar sands oil, which produces 20% more GHG than other kinds of oil. (Source)
