#WorldWeWant Campaign on Climate Impacts

The campaign by Climate Action Network 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 and ensure 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.
