As UN Climate Summit begins, global mobilisations call for urgent climate action

On the eve of the climate talks, hundreds of thousands took to the streets in over 2,300 events spread across 175 countries to demand that negotiating parties keep fossil fuels in the ground and finance a just transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050.

May Boeve, Executive Director issued the following statement:

“The scale and diversity of today’s events are astounding. Worldwide people are ready for the end of fossil fuels and the dawn of renewables. World leaders can no longer ignore this urgent call for action as the climate crisis continues to unfold. It is time for them to stand on the right side of history.”
