Global Climate Action Week

Global Climate Action Week
Global Sep 20, 2019. Past

Accelerated climate change is causing one of the greatest inequalities of our time. The world’s poorest and most vulnerable, who are least responsible for causing climate change, unfairly bear the brunt of its impacts. According to the United Nations, the world’s poorest 1 billion people (living on less than USD 1 per day) are responsible for just 3% of the global carbon footprint.

It is time to take strong action – make our voices be heard!

On September 20 – 27, people of all generations from all over the world are mobilising to demand increased climate action from decision-makers, particularly leaders attending the special UN Climate Action Summit in New York on September 23.

Along with several CARE members, CARE India has committed to bring the conversation on climate change – effects and remedies to all staff and beyond.

Activities planned for the Global Climate Action Week include:

  • #CARE4Climate Quiz – a test of how much we know about climate change
  • Screening of India’s first commercial film on climate change, followed by Chai pe Charcha
  • Pledge a commitment towards reducing our carbon footprint
  • Post, share and engage on social media with key messages and updates from the UN Climate Summit
  • Raise general awareness by putting up posters and distributing stickers at the workplace
