The Road To Paris Climate Conference: Our Beds Are Burning

Five years ago our friends at TckTckTck put together an amazing video in the lead up to the United Nations Copenhagen Climate Conference. There was incredible hope, hype and expectation built up around this meeting; unfortunately the results could not meet the hype. The meeting and it’s results were a disappointment to all.
Take a few minutes, grab the kids in your life and watch this video. When you hear Copenhagen,substitute Paris. It is a wonderful video and all the more relevant in 2015.
Fast forward five years, PARIS – December 2015; failure is not an option. The difference today, in 2015, is that we have a massive, building wave of public pressure demanding and creating action on climate change. While we did have public pressure in Copenhagen the lead up to Paris is infinitely more powerful; and a wave that can’t be stopped.
The “Road to Paris” is being paved with hard work and action, and the road beyond Paris with bonds that will be unbreakable.
We will be bringing you regular updates and ways to engage in the coming months. Today, join us, raise your voice, and sign petitions to world governments from two of our allies, demanding climate justice and climate action, now! The results of these petitions will be delivered to governments in Paris this coming December.
