#WorldWeWant Campaign on Climate Impacts

The Climate Action Network (CAN) #WorldWeWant Campaign on Climate Impacts drives collective action through the stories of communities affected by the climate crisis and serves as a clarion call for governments to address multiple and compounding crises to protect their citizens for a safe and resilient future. Through compelling, locally-produced, short smartphone videos we witness how decades of inaction on the climate crisis are impacting people, but also learn how communities are using grassroots solutions in both developing and developed countries to hold their leaders accountable.

The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP26, is the 26th United Nations Climate Change conference. It is scheduled to be held in the city of Glasgow, Scotland from 31 October to 12 November 202. It is important to convey the need for urgent and increased climate action as millions of people across the world keep suffering from droughts, floods, fires & food shortages. In this video, Scottish activists explain how their homes, livelihoods, Gaelic language and culture is at risk due to rising sea levels. They call upon frontline communities to stand together in asking for URGENT and AMBITIOUS climate action as the only way to make the COP26 in Glasgow a turning point in climate action.

Are you willing to volunteer to tell authentic stories of courage and innovation from your community/region within South Asia?

It’s a fabulous opportunity for you to participate in sharing regional stories of how people are impacted due to the climate crisis and what they do about it. We want to know how people/communities are tackling problems like the climate crisis, Covid, and poverty in their countries.

We want YOUR participation as citizen journalists to help us with getting the right stories of the ‘world we want’ on video.
