Climate and energy
Our unjust economic system is driving climate breakdown
For millions of people around the world, climate change is a crisis which has already arrived. Many of those people have made virtually no contribution to climate change, while just 100 multinational corporations are responsible for 71% of carbon emissions.
Power to the people
To get the urgent action we need on climate change, the climate justice movement needs to build a counterweight to the huge power of corporations. A zero carbon economy will also have to be one which is more democratic and which builds solidarity with those at the forefront of climate breakdown.
COP26 climate talks
The United Nations climate talks (also known as the Conference of Parties or COP) that were scheduled to have taken place in Glasgow from November 9 - 19 this year have now been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. But the climate emergency isn't going away, and we're continuing with our plans to mobilise and to help ensure that the voices of those most affected by the climate emergency are heard at the summit, whenever that turns out to be.
