Today we join #ClimateMarch around the world to remind leaders for ambitious climate action at #COP21.
In September, world leaders met at the UN General Assembly and committed to a new set of Global Goals for Sustainable Development. If implemented correctly over the next fifteen years, these goals could put an end to some of the most pressing issues of our time: poverty, inequality and climate change.
Now comes the time for leaders to deliver a bold new international climate agreement; this will be the first test to their ambition for a better future for people and planet. We know that climate change could undermine all the progress we have made in eradicating poverty and inequality thus far.
When leaders come together for climate talks in Paris on November 30 – December 11 (COP21), we want to demonstrate the strength of our movement and push for ambitious commitments to tackle climate change.
That’s why on November 29th, the day before the UN climate talks begin, the action/2015 movement will join with thousands around the world for the Global Climate March. Development organizations, climate movements, people young and old, faith groups, indigenous people, trade unions and many more will march together. Together, we will demonstrate that tackling climate change is important to all of us, and urge leaders to play their part in the fight against climate change.
Over the weekend, we have seen hundreds of Malaysians gathered to take climate action. We have #KampusSarap doing a climate clean up event in Kanching Waterfall, Selangor. A group in Penang took to the Beach Streets and made some climate noice. While our friends from Ecocentric Transistions lead a community group to march through the streets of Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur.
To change everything, we need everyone — join the #ClimateMarch action today and December 2015 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) together we can shape a brighter future for people and planet
