With Donald Trump pulling the US out of the Paris Agreement, and new gas and coal infrastructure still on the table in Europe, we need a diverse, people-powered movement for climate justice more than ever.

At the 23rd UN Climate Talks (COP23), where Fiji holds the presidency, the Pacific Climate Warriors are showing true leadership and urging the world to take real action now.

The Warriors are already on the ground in Bonn to spread this message, joined by the U.S. People’s Delegation, the Fossil Free network, and other allies.

If you’re in Bonn, join us! You can connect with the 350.org team and the Fossil Free network at the actions and spaces below.

If you can’t make it to Bonn, you can support us and follow events through the live blog, going live on 3 November at noon. You can also follow and share the big moments on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
