PARTY 4 THE PLANET
Step up for climate justice and move for Mother Earth!
#Party4ThePlanet is about us, the youth: we want to be seen and heard right now. It’s time for global leaders to pay attention because our hopes and dreams are at stake; these leaders must protect our future by protecting our climate.
Let’s crash this tired and dragging party. Join the call and demand urgent climate action from world leaders this COP27.
WHAT IS COP27?
COP, which stands for Conference of the Parties, is an annual meeting by the United Nations where world leaders discuss about the climate.
The UN climate talks have been dragging on for years, yet we still haven’t seen big, decisive commitments and action to address climate change. As the generation that faces the worst impacts of climate change, we are owning our future by using all necessary means for climate aciton. COP27 is an important event where the youth’s voices should be heard.
WHAT IS OUR CALL?
Hold climate polluters accountable and help vulnerable communities cope with stronger and more frequent typhoons, flooding and landslides, excessive drought and wildfires, and other climate impacts.
We cannot continue letting the fossil fuel industry and other corporate polluters—whose businesses have been heating up our planet for decades—get away with their crimes any longer. At the same time, we must not allow governments to waste any more of our precious time, while our window to prevent irreversible climate change, and a future filled with disasters, is closing.
PARTY 4 THE PLANET DANCE TUTORIAL
Dance to the beat and step up for Climate Justice! Learn the steps through this dance tutorial.
STEP 1: Look there’s another typhoon!
Point up. Point down. There’s another typhoon coming to town. As climate change worsens, the intensity and frequency of typhoons are becoming more severe and unprecedented.
STEP 2: Oh, it’s climate change!
You know what’s breaking our plans? Climate change! Aside from extreme weather events, climate change also accelerates sea level rise, resulting to many cities across the globe being submerged, which may include your community too!
STEP 3: Say X to fossil fuels!
The main cause of our worry on why we’re falling into a climate crisis is the fossil fuel industry. Their carbon emissions are exacerbating climate change and endangering the planet and our future.
STEP 4: We don’t need words. We need climate action!
Don’t need to talk the talk, just walk the walk. Stop with the empty promises and false solutions. We need commitments from the world leaders. We need concrete actions from the fossil fuel industry.
STEP 5: Spread the word about climate change!
Let the other youth know how serious climate change is! We need more voices to move our world leaders in holding the fossil fuel industry accountable for their loss and damage to the planet.
