Climate change is speeding up and getting worse, and time is running short to protect people and nature.

The UN Climate Summit 2015 that will take place from 30 November to 11 December in Paris can be a milestone in the struggle against climate change. Paris represents the most important global moment for progressive climate action since COP15 in Copenhagen (2009).

In Paris, countries can come together to speed up the global zero-carbon transition by redirecting economic development towards decarbonisation and climate resilience.

The science is clear, the technology is here and people are ready. Now, we need political will. 

The time has come for a new global ambitious and fair climate deal.
