Global Day of Action for Climate Justice – 6 more weeks to COP26?

“Ethical Markets fully supports this innovative global initiative, the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty now gaining widespread support, with its impeccable background research and Letter to  Dr. Fatih Birol of the International Energy Agency signed by us and thousands of organizations, supporting the need to keep fossil reserves in the ground and move more rapidly to renewables.

In less than 6 weeks, world leaders will meet in Glasgow at COP26 to discuss our future. We already know that many groups and communities on the frontlines of the climate crisis will not be able to make it to Glasgow this November.

This means that it’s more important than ever to get organised so that our demands for climate justice are loud enough that they can’t be ignored.

 

Global Day of Action for Climate Justice

On 6th November, movements across the world are coming together to take action – from indigenous struggles to trade unions, from racial justice groups to youth strikers.

The Covid pandemic means that not everyone can travel to Glasgow. That is why on the 6th November, we’re calling for decentralised actions worldwide. Wherever you are in the world, you can help bring climate justice to COP26.

Want to get involved but not sure where to start?

 

There are many ways you can get involved in our movement. We need all hands on deck: in workplaces, communities, schools, hospitals and across national borders.  Now is the time to join the fight.

Join us for our webinar to find out how you can get involved – from volunteering to mobilising, from local to international levels. We’ll discuss why and how we’re getting organised for COP, our plans for and before COP, and the different ways you can get stuck in.

Don’t worry if you can’t make the session. You can re-watch it here afterwards.
