Over 195 countries
reached an historic agreement in Paris at the 2015 United Nations Conference on Climate Change. In short, they agreed to take measurable action, make binding commitments, and work together to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to collectively keep global temperature rise well below 2°C and to pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5°C.

The countries in attendance recognized that:

  • Climate change is a common concern of humankind;
  • Climate change represents an urgent and potentially irreversible threat to society and the planet;
  • There is an urgent need to promote universal access to sustainable energy in both developing and developed countries.

This landmark agreement will be signed at the United Nations in New York on Earth Day – April 22, 2016.
The decision to ratify the agreement on Earth Day is a testament to Earth Day Network’s contributions to the overall environmental movement and its ongoing efforts to address climate change.

This is our moment.
