On September 8, hundreds of thousands of people worldwide displayed the growing strength and diversity of the climate movement.
Together they showed the world what real climate leadership looks like. People everywhere are turning away from the age of fossil fuels and it’s time for politicians to follow. There’s no time to lose.
In 2018 the world experienced unprecedented climate impacts. From catastrophic heatwaves and devastating droughts to deadly wildfires and extreme storms — the world saw the first glimpses of what the future could be without urgent action to solve the climate crisis.
With Rise For Climate we showed that we will not just wait for governments to act. We are going to lead by example and demand that all of our institutions and governments do the same.
The test for real climate leadership is simple: leave fossil fuels in the ground and commit to 100% renewable energy. With hundreds of creative actions on September 8, the climate movement showed the world that we will not accept anything less.
