The responsibility also rests on us to make sure that now, and after the climate negotiations in Paris, we continue to amp up the pressure on our leaders to act against climate change.

They must hear us demand the end of emissions. They must see the light  we’re shining on a 100% renewable energy future which cuts through the thickening pollution and dense political wrangling of decision-makers.

We can and must break the chain between dirty energy, climate change, devastating weather patterns and human rights violations and add a new link which leads us to a sustainable future which improves security, betters lives and rebuilds a healthier planet.

Solar, wind and other sustainable energies is that link, and it is achievable.

The fact is, if you believe in human rights you’ve already signed up for a 100% renewable energy future.

Let’s make sure our leaders know it. Join us.
