Our Focus

Centering people and climate impacts

Centering the stories of those impacted by the climate crisis and using their voices and experiences to advocate for lasting change towards a more resilient world is a priority for CAN’s work.

Ending Fossil Fuels

Stripping fossil fuel companies of their social and economic license to destroy the planet is a key pillar of CAN’s work.

Transformative national climate action plans

We hold governments accountable to the promise of the Paris Agreement to deliver ambitious climate targets to keep global warming below 1.5ºC.

Multilateral Action and Advocacy

As the civil society convener in the UN climate negotiations and other internatonal fora, CAN pushes for the strongest political outcomes that ensure a climate safe, just and sustainable future.

Building Power Through Movements

The political will to change the world will come through local communities and grassroots movements fighting together in solidarity to bring about a climate just and equitable world. CAN aspires to strengthen our regional and national civil society networks to ensure that all global advocacy and strategies are informed from the bottom-up.
