CALL FOR ACTION: MAT AND JUNE GLOBAL CLIMATE MOBILISATION;xNLx;;xNLx;This May and June, youth, faith leaders, and members of labour, development and justice organisations from across the world will call for the just transformation away from fossil fuels to be scaled up so that it can address our biggest problems - climate change, social inequality, unemployment and poverty. ;xNLx;;xNLx;We will stand side by side to ensure governments know that the people are demanding and driving action - we are building citizen-owned, locally based solutions, and strengthening a movement that will keep growing until we achieve a complete, just transition from fossil fuels to 100% renewable energy in citizens hands. ;xNLx;We call on all people to join together at this vital moment and to organize actions which showcase the right kind of decisions governments need to make to drive forward the people-powered transition to a world free of climate change, unsafe and dirty energy and inequality. Will government leaders support us actively in powering this transition or will they stand on the wrong side of history?;xNLx;;xNLx;When;xNLx;On the 30th and 31st of May the international mobilisation will be kicked off in France by Coalition Climat 21 with activities across the country. During those days, groups across the globe will be making the same demands and others will start of their activities leading into early June focusing on the G7 meetings in Germany as well as the UNFCCC session in Bonn. These weeks will serve as a global launch of a year of action, being crucial to connect the dots of the amazing people power 2015 and beyond will witness. ;xNLx;;xNLx;How;xNLx;The global call for climate action will take the message of the transition away from fossils and to renewables to the people with both boots on the ground and online activities. In France, actions, initiatives and demonstrations of all sizes will fill the cities. Other countries will see rallies in front of Parliaments, other direct actions, and citizen involvement at the G7 meetings. There will also be concerts that will gather audiences in the tens of thousands. ;xNLx;;xNLx;All of this will be backed by online activities, making it possible for people all around the world to voice their call for climate action/justice.

Action2015 - month of actions

Action/2015 members are organizing a month of global citizen mobilisations during the month of May. The aim is mobilise 15 million people across the world to put mass pressure on world leaders as they make final preparations for the Post 2015 Sustainable Development Goal summit in September and COP21 in December. While Action/2015 members can undertake their own events and actions according to their national priorities – the mobilisation month also offers opportunities to amplify our voices, work in partnership and coordinate events with common actions and content, and unify us around a series of themed Days of Action. Throughout the month we will come together to take action and push messages on particular themes on specific days.

G7 Finance Ministries meeting - Dresden

The main focus of the meeting is to discuss climate and security. A new study on the subject will be presented.

The Rally for Courage - Königsplatz, Munich

What: On the eve of the G7 summit, musicians, political figures, activists, global citizens and celebrities will call on Chancellor Merkel and other world leaders to show the courage needed to overcome extreme poverty by 2030. Gathering together at the iconic Königsplatz, a short distance from where the G7 meeting will take place, 15,000 people will join well-known public figures from Germany and beyond, to celebrate ‘unsung heroes’ in the fight for justice. At this political rally they will call on the leaders of the world’s richest countries to show courage to end extreme poverty, hunger and preventable diseases. Why: 2015 is a pivotal year to change the future of our people and our planet. This year world leaders will establish an ambitious, new set of development goals at the UN General Assembly meeting in September and act on climate change. The G7 summit is a critical advocacy moment to ensure that leaders from the world’s richest countries address key issues facing our generation. The message from this event to world leaders is clear: it’s time to keep your promises and show courageous leadership, we must act now to end extreme poverty. That’s why – as the leaders of the world’s richest countries meet – we’ll be calling on G7 leaders to: ● Support ambitious and robust goals in September and ensure they are fully financed. ● Keep their current promises to the world’s poor and ensure most aid is focused on countries that have the least. ● Make specific political and financial commitments on key issues at G7 Summit in June. Our invitation: We are committed to making this a moment for the entire sustainable development sector to come together and demand courageous leadership on poverty and injustice at the G7 in Bavaria. *working title We would like to collaborate with you on this event and would love to discuss what form this might take.
