To create real momentum, we need everyone. Watch and share this video and make sure your friends know about 8th September. Here it is on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

As we get closer and closer the Rise for Climate global day of action on September 8th,’s Thanu Yakupitiyage spells out for us one more time why it’s so important to get out there and demand real climate action from our local leaders.

“National governments are still falling short on their commitments on climate action — they’re still investing in fossil fuels.

That’s why we’re intensifying our calls for elected officials to act.

We need bold climate action now.”
