The numbers don’t lie: the Earth is getting warmer. We’ve already warmed the Earth by 1°C, and are on track to reach more than 3° of warming unless we make significant changes. That might seem like a small number, but it’s a big deal. Scientists recently warned that we must reverse course in the next 12 years on how we use energy to eat, travel and live or our planet, people, and the resources we depend on will see major impacts.
The United Nations has declared climate change the defining issue of our time. UN Secretary-General António Guterres has repeatedly called on us all to be leaders in the fight against climate change. We agree that it’s time we all commit to immediate climate action. That’s why our theme for 2019 is “Our Planet. Our Future.”
This year, we will focus our awareness campaigns, activities, and events on our theme of Climate Action. Visit our ‘Get Involved’ page for more information on our efforts this year to promote Climate Action as well as actions you can take to reduce your carbon footprint.
