COP25 is the final COP before we enter the defining year of 2020

Climate Change is happening—the world is already 1.1°C warmer than it was at the onset of the industrial revolution, and it is already having a significant impact on the world, and on people’s lives. And if current trends persist, then global temperatures can be expected to rise by 3.4 to 3.9°C this century, which would bring wide-ranging and destructive climate impacts.

There is more evidence of the impacts of climate change, especially in extreme weather events, and these impacts are taking a greater toll.  The science shows that emissions are still going up, not down. 

COP25 is the final COP before we enter the defining year of 2020, when many nations must submit new climate action plans. Among the many elements that need to be ironed out is the financing of climate action worldwide.

Currently, not enough is being done to meet the three climate goals: reducing emissions 45 per cent by 2030; achieving climate neutrality by 2050 (which means a net zero carbon footprint), and stabilizing global temperature rise at 1.5°C by the end of the century.

Because the clock is ticking on climate change, the world cannot afford to waste more time, and a bold, decisive, ambitious way forward needs to be agreed.

Waiting for our governments to take decisive actions to fight climate change, each and every one can do their part. Although it may seem useless, there's a lot you can do: small actions put together can make a big difference. 

1. Eat vegan, or vegetarian, or at least reduce meat in your meals.

2. Walk more, use cars less, use bikes, use public transportation, bus and train.

3. Reduce single use plastic.

4. Use renewable energy.

5. Reduce, reuse, recycle.
