The Paris Agreement is turning five years old on the 12th of December, but we have no reason to celebrate. At the Paris Climate Conference in 2015, representatives from 196 countries agreed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It was decided to limit the rise of global temperatures to well below 2°C, but to endeavor to limit the increase to 1.5°C. However, in the last five years, emissions have continued to rise and the promises of our governments to combat the climate crisis have not been kept.
This anniversary is the perfect opportunity to ask our governments to make courageous decisions that will secure a liveable future for everybody on this earth.
Our goal is to send as many birthday postcards as possible to our leaders to remind them of their responsibility to ACT NOW and fulfill the Paris Agreement. You can send your postcard by mail or online. Posting our cards on social media will amplify the message. Let’s rock this special birthday!
