If you could write a letter to world leaders, what would you say?
In November, heads of state, climate experts and campaigners will be brought together to agree coordinated action to tackle the climate crisis.
COP26 will be the world’s best chance of building a cleaner, heathier, safer, more resilient and egalitarian world for all 7.8 billion of us — that we so desperately need.
But the climate crisis affects, and will affect, different countries, regions, sectors, communities, ecosystems and individuals in very different ways.
The Climate Champions believe that everyone should have a stake in the future of our world.
If you feel you can give a voice to the underepresented — from an issue to a community — we want to hear from you.
In approximately 500-800 words, please tell us what specific action world leaders should be taking right now to tackle our planet’s biggest environmental challenges.
Letters will be posted on the Climate Champions website every day in the last 100 days to COP26.
We will endeavour to publish all letters which meet the brief.
Submissions can be sent via email to Charlotte Owen-Burge at email@example.com from now until September 1 2021.
Please include your name, country and a short sentence about your profession or experience which relates to your submission.
Submissions which promote an indivudual, company or organization will not be accepted.
We can only rise to the challenges of the climate crisis by working together and listening to each other.
