The clock is ticking. Three years after the historic Paris Climate agreement it is clear we have to do more, much more, to halt climate change. But here is the good news: The solutions for a rapid shift to a Green economy are there. People across Europe, and across the world, are rising up to demand action. So now it’s a matter of political will. Now it’s time to deliver.
Science shows that Europe’s current targets of cutting emissions by 40% in 2030 do not go far enough to keep the world’s temperature below 1.5C. In fact, scientists have analysed that the temperature of our earth will rise to at least 3 degrees if Europe doesn’t increase it’s commitment. This is potentially disastrous, considering the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report that stated that if the world’ temperature rises above 1.5C, the impacts of climate change on our planet would be irreversible. It’s time to demand more from our leaders. It’s time they deliver.
We demand EU leaders to commit to a 55% cut in emissions by 2030 to avoid the risk of climate change.
We demand our leaders to show their commitment to tackling climate change by taking bold action today.
