The most global action on Climate Change in 2015
At the One Young World Summit 2015, young leaders from every country in the world addressed their Heads of Government on mainstream media before the Paris Climate Conference - COP21 - commencing on 30 November. Each Call On COP delegate delivered an impactful speech highlighting how climate change is endangering our future.
One Young World Counsellors including former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, Unilever CEO Paul Polman and philanthropist Sir Bob Geldof also called on world leaders to commit to capping carbon emissions.
20 years of UN climate negotiations have been unable to produce a legally binding and universal agreement on climate Change. The united voice of young leaders and global luminaries ensures that governments know that the world is watching them.
Each of these speeches is being picked up by media outlets all over the world, in the efforts to spread these messages and create inescapable impact ahead of COP21.
