Our home is at risk
Our shared home, planet Earth, is a beautiful and amazing place. A home where we’ve felt welcomed, safe, nourished and loved. But climate change is happening.
We are already starting to see the damaging impacts of global warming on our home. Scientists have concluded that an increase in global temperatures above 1.5 °C will have catastrophic effects and put the everyday life that we know at risk.
To ensure we do not reach this critical tipping point, the world must reduce carbon emissions by 50% by 2030 and reach net zero emissions by 2050. The world is not on track to meet this target.
