Awareness and interest in climate change are increasing around the world.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a new assessment report in October 2018. It stated that many impacts of climate change could be avoided by limiting global warming to 1.5 ° C instead of 2 ° C above pre-industrial levels. In order to suppress the temperature to 1.5 ° C. “Global anthropogenic net carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions need to be reduced by about 45% from 2010 levels by 2030, to reach ‘net zero’ around 2050”. * 1

On September 23 this year, “United Nations Climate Action Summit” will be held in New York. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres is calling on all leaders attending the conference to approach the conference with a “Concrete, realistic plans to strengthen the contributions (NDCs) that the country has decided to make by 2020 in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 45% over the next 10 years and achieve net 0 emissions by 2050.”.

And among young people, a strike started every Friday in August 2018 by a 16 year-old Swedish girl, Greta Toonberg, calling on the government to cut carbon emissions in compliance with the Paris agreement, has spread to Europe and more than 1 million people worldwide in the form of “Fridays For Future”. * 2

In support of these youth strikes, “Global Climate Strike” will be held around the world from September 20 to 27th this month. * 3

The “Global Climate March” to be held on September 20, has already been decided to be held in 117 countries, and people from all over the world will take action. * 4
