As fall turns to winter, the United Nations is nearing the culmination of a yearlong process negotiating a global agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Much of this work has been done relatively quietly, with mainstream media outlets releasing a paragraph or two following key meetings.
So when world leaders arrive in Paris this December at the UN climate talks, it’s no time to be quiet. As we’ve witnessed during the People’s Climate Movement and Know Tomorrow, people from around the world and from all walks of life are speaking out on behalf of a safe climate. But we need to keep that pressure on.
That’s why this November 13—14, with 24 Hours of Reality and Live Earth: The World is Watching, we’ll be raising a storm online, in the media, and everywhere else to ensure all eyes are focused on Paris.
Here’s how you can help: Share the reason you’ll be keeping your eyes locked on world leaders and the UN climate talks. From now until November 14, raise your voice on social media with #WhyImWatching. Let your friends, colleagues, coworkers, and key decision-makers know your eyes are on the prize, and you’re not letting up until leaders commit to a strong agreement in Paris.
We’ll start – here’s why we’re watching:
