It’s a fast-paced journey through the tangled world of climate change: the science, the politics, the solutions, and the stories that define this crisis at this pivotal point in human history.

People's Climate March

In September, world leaders came to New York City for a historic UN summit on climate change. With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we took a weekend and used it to bend the course of history.

Together, we took to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet. A world safe from the ravages of climate change. A world with good jobs, clean air, and healthy communities for everyone.
