As we approach the midpoint of this this vital year for climate action things are heating up. A slew of climate related events, reports and meetings are scheduled throughout May and June, from the UNFCCC Bonn Climate Change Conference to the G7, and the UNGA High Level Event on Climate Change in New York. Beginning in late May, thousands of people around the world will take to the streets in hundreds of different actions to call for solutions to the world's greatest problems climate change, poverty, inequality and unemployment. A wide range of voices, from business leaders, to the top tier of the faith community, youth, labour, and those from frontline communities will raise the pitch of the global chorus calling for the just transition away from a world hooked on fossil fuels, to one powered by 100% renewable energy.
Against this backdrop, negotiators will meet in Bonn to push forward the draft Paris agreement on climate change due to be signed this December.
