Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts

Climate change is hitting developing countries the hardest, even though they have contributed the least to its causes. Droughts, floods, rising sea levels, and extreme weather disasters are causing food shortages, destroying homes, and claiming lives in some of the poorest places in the world.

This goal is about making sure developing countries get the help they urgently need to adapt to our changing climate. But it’s also about all of us doing more to tackle climate change. Every country needs to work through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and keep their climate promises.

Our planet’s ability to sustain life is incredible, and if we act now, we can protect it for future generations.

Stand as ONE

World leaders have agreed to 17 Global Goals that would mean a better life for all of us. The Goals are a plan to build a world where children don't go to bed hungry, where girls get the same opportunity to thrive as boys, and where people don't die of preventable diseases. It's one of the most incredible to-do lists ever written - but now we need to turn words into action.

As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality exist in our world, none of us can truly rest.

Nelson Mandela

Mandela's words represent what it means to be a ONE member and at the birth of these ambitious new goals, we will not rest until they are achieved. Stand with more than 9 million others and in Mandela's honour - pledge to use your voice. We know it has power to change lives and bring about a better world for all of us, as ONE.
