"The Road to Paris" is a term climate activists are using to call attention to the UN Climate Change Conference (COP21) held in Paris this coming December. The intention is to secure a legally binding global climate agreement to dramatically curb carbon emissions and accelerate the planet-wide shift to clean energy.
Diverse groups, organizations, corporations, businesses, and citizens, as well as religious and spiritual groups are joining together to put pressure on world leaders to sign a legally binding agreement in Paris.
Many climate scientists emphasize the urgency for us to come together this year … finally … as One Humanity/One Planet, to tackle the greatest challenge that we have ever faced: climate change.
Educate others! The more loudly we all speak up and also show up, the more pressure we put on our world leaders to sign a binding agreement in Paris.
