The climate crisis is here and now, already wrecking the lives of millions of people worldwide. Every day, the devastating impacts of climate change are being felt. And not equally. The richest people are plundering the planet and polluting for profit while others suffer. People living in poverty, who did the least to cause the crisis, suffer the most. Discrimination means that it’s often women who pay the highest price. Young people everywhere are seeing their futures stolen.
Every one of us has a part to play
The global climate movement is fighting this injustice – and every person and organization has a role. Oxfam is rising too as part of this movement. With the help of millions of supporters worldwide, we’re already saving lives on the frontline of the climate crisis and pushing governments to act.
Now we want to team up with you to do more. We demand faster, fairer emissions cuts now – not vague vows for the future. We demand proper support for the people hit hardest by climate breakdown. And a radically different economic system that protects people and planet.
Movements of ordinary people change the course of history. Together, we can all be #ClimateChangers and play our part in fighting the climate crisis – and we can demand powerful politicians and businesses do the same. Join us today.
2000 steps for climate justice
We need immediate, drastic action from our governments and corporations now. To coincide with the COP26 UN Climate Summit happening in Glasgow this year, the World Climate March ran a virtual 1.5km (or 2000 steps) march for climate justice. See all the remarkable marches around the world and find out how you can join them.
About the campaign
Now is our time to rise up. We’re building a global community of #ClimateChangers. We will be the change we want to see in the world. We will stand with the people on the frontline of climate chaos. And together, we will take on those who cause such damage and drive such suffering.
