Christiana Figueres, former executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change—the person who led COP21 and the Paris Agreement—offered a “golden engraved invitation” to us all during a panel on climate action at the Clinton Global Initiative. Ms. Figueres called upon the world to act with a sense of binding urgency and “swallow the alarm clock.”
The Paris Agreement officially entered into force last Friday and today marked the opening of COP22 in Marrakech where world leaders are garthering to discuss implementation of the Paris Agreement. Solving for climate change will take incredible innovations across industries. Everyone needs to be at the table.
In partnership with the United Nations Foundation and a growing coalition of nonprofits, media, and businesses, GOOD is thrilled to announce Earth To Marrakech. Building off the moment of the Earth To Paris movement for COP21, Earth To Marrakech unites partners around the world to engage the public in tuning in to COP22 and demanding bolder actions from our political leaders as they advance their plans to keep global warming at no more than two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
