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. We welcome all initiatives of all sizes across the world to join this moment, which can be done as an individual activity or as part of an already planned event. ;xNLx;;xNLx;This timeline is managed by Lasse Galvani Bruun from Climate Action Network.

Petition using Droit d'Initiative - ACMCA (Action Climat Montreal/Montreal Climate Action)

It will be a petition to the city of Montreal based on our city's Droit d'Initiative. According to the bylaw if anyone gathers 15K signatures toward a certain concern (ours is "How can we make Montreal a more sustainable city?"), city hall will hold a kind of public inquiry and panel discussion among a range of experts on the subject. Signature collection occurs in a 90-day window, ours beginning April 21st and ending July 19th. We are hoping to raise the bar for our city, develop new solutions, underscore existing ones, and ultimately raise the profile of these issues on a local level to foster public support for major changes. As the signatures have yet to be collected, the specific changes have yet to be tabled.

‘One Goal Match Day’ to raise awarenss about hunger & malnutrition

One Goal is s a campaign partnership and global movement of advocates with one goal: Nutrition for every child. With football and sports as the catalyst, One Goal seeks to bring awareness to the issue of child malnutrition and powerfully inspire and mobilise the sports community to take action to increase the number of children who survive and thrive. The ‘One Goal Match Day’ on 15 May is a fun and innovative way to link grassroots football and other sporting activities for children and nutrition training for youth and parents. It also coincides with the Asian Football Confederation’s Grassroots Day. The ‘One Goal Match Day’ gets adolescents involved in sport activities, encourage an active and healthy lifestyle through participation and share the keys to good nutrition. Through a ‘One Goal Match Day’ we can mobilise the football community, general public and corporates across countries for mutual benefit to football and to childhood malnutrition. This year we will use the day to promote action/2015 to raise awareness about the SDGs generally and the importance of good nutrition (Goal 2 & 3 of the SDGs). A ‘One Goal Match Day’ toolkit and resources have been developed to support the activities and action/2015 partners are invited to join. Link to key resources: http://goo.gl/C45OAA Activity expected in the following countries: Australia, Bangaldesh, Cambodia, India, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Philippines and Vietnam.

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. We propose two potential options for your involvement: Partner Partners would join a small group of organisations contributing to the cost of staging the event and would encourage their supporters or members to attend. The benefits partners receive will include:  Branding – on stage and in all external communication including social media campaign  Data – potential opportunity to gather data of attendees  Content – profile for your issue and organization on stage in a 5 minute presenting slot on stage with potential video content  The chance to engage with attendees at the event Supporter Supporters would encourage their supporters or members to attend the event. They would be kept closely informed of plans for the event and would have the chance to engage with attendees.

CIVICUS Global Day of Citizen Action

The Global Day of Citizen Action, started in 2014, is a global campaign to raise awareness about threats to freedom of expression, association and assembly. The campaign raises awareness through direct engagement of citizens by asking them whether they feel free to speak out, organise and take action in the country where they live. Participants write their answer on a colour-coded board and have their photo taken (with their permission) and the images are shared and mapped to provide a sense of the existence of civic space in different parts of the world. We also run an online component on the day where people can have their say. Both the physical and virtual events are shared and amplified through social media. Last year we mobilised over 20,000 participants in 48 events across 26 countries. Visit our Flickr Page to see some of the images from last year or you can view our 2014 Promo Video. This year we will use the event to promote action/2015 and to raise awareness about the SDGs generally and the importance of civic space (Goal 16) and will have small grants that we can award to a few organisations. Everyone is welcome to participate! The Day forms part of a broader campaign on civic space that we run which you can find out about here: http://www.youcanbethechange.com/ Key contact: Zubair Sayed, Head of Communication, CIVICUS (zubair.sayed@civicus.org; or Tweet me info on events/campaigns @zubairsay)
