The Climate Action Network (CAN) #WorldWeWant Campaign on Climate Impacts 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 for 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.
Rising sea levels threaten the homes, livelihoods & Gaelic language of Scottish communities. Join them & other climate activists who are gathering for ‘From the Ground Up’ in lieu of the postponed #COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland as we demand for urgent and ambitious #climateaction to build the #WorldWeWant.
#COP26 was due to take place in Scotland this year. It is postponed to next year but the need for urgent and increased climate action continues as millions of people across the world keep suffering from droughts, floods, fires & food shortages. In this video, Scottish activists explain how their homes, livelihoods, Gaelic language and culture is at risk due to rising sea levels. They call upon frontline communities to stand together in asking for URGENT and AMBITIOUS climate action as the only way to make the COP26 in Glasgow a turning point in climate action.
This video also coincides with the From the Ground Up event and brings our movements together in order to work towards a global plan of action to create the change ahead of next year’s COP26 in Glasgow.
