It is the young people who are calling to act in the face of the climatic emergency, there is a deadline, the date is the year 2030 to make it irreversible, any action to prevent the collapse of the planet in the face of global warming, after this, it will be hopelessly late.

Young people demand that those responsible for environmental policies in all countries facing the situation, take the necessary change measures to preserve life on the planet, not deny them the right to aspire to have a life in the future, or they will be destined to be part of the species that disappear from the world.

From September 20 to 27, 2019 they are calling for a week of world protests. There is an agenda of activities throughout the week, to be carried out in different cities of the world in a coordinated way and many simultaneously.

UN Climate Action Summit 2019

The UN Climate Action Summit is convened by the United Nations Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, will be held at the headquarters in New York City, on September 23, 2019, within the framework of the Annual Assembly of the United Nations.

This Climate Action Summit is called to be the last warning step to all the countries participating in the Paris Agreement. It will seek to increase the ambition of the countries, that world leaders assume the challenge of taking all the necessary measures to make their entry into force feasible, so that their objectives can be met, avoiding the increase in temperature to more than 1.5º C, only possibility to stop the destruction of the planet by global warming. This has been explained by the scientists who integrate the IPCC work panels and detail it in their latest report to the world.

Accompanying this summit, complementary events will be developed, which incorporate different sectors of influence on the issue of climate change. The aim is to maximize “ambition” to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement, encouraging both public and private sectors to develop policies aimed at achieving substantial changes, leading to the eradication of greenhouse gases by use of fossil fuels for power generation. It is about promoting changes in the very short term, with a limit in the year 2050 to bring the emission of greenhouse gases to zero. It is about migrating to clean energy, moving to electric vehicles around the world; to immediately eliminate the production and consumption of single-use plastics and work at the same time on their replacement mechanisms, to stop the increasing contamination of our seas and oceans, undertake the necessary changes that lead
