We Must Commit to a Livable and Just Climate Future
The climate crisis has reached a moment of unmeasurable urgency. Nations and negotiators at COP28 must commit to building the bridge to a livable climate future and bringing an end to the fossil fuel era. Send your message to world leaders ahead of COP28.
Dear Global Leaders,
At COP28, I ask you to:
- Commit to scaling up renewable energy, energy efficiency, and energy access in a way that phases out fossil fuels while minimizing harm to nature and communities.
Encourage subnational entities—including cities, companies, and institutions—to lead systemic transformation by committing to science-based net zero targets and reinventing the ways we create, consume, transport and dispose of material in our economy.
Recognize the inseparable link between human rights and climate action, particularly in the regions of the world that are most vulnerable to climate impacts, by meeting climate finance commitments that help developing countries respond and build resilience to growing climate impacts as well as fund the Loss and Damage facility agreed to at COP27.
Fully integrate nature-based solutions as a critical component of climate action, specifically by addressing deforestation, large-scale land management and food systems, and doing so in full partnership with Indigenous peoples and local communities throughout the planning and execution process.
Encourage multilateral finance institutions to adopt a "do no harm, do more good, have more influence" approach towards climate action.
We cannot wait for a future invention or a new generation of leaders to be the solution to the climate crisis. The work needs to begin now to build a livable future for our people and our planet.
