I have been working in the parent climate space for more than a decade. It has been rewarding, powerful and frustrating. I have often wondered: Are we truly being heard, are our actions being noticed, are we reaching far and wide? How can we amplify our voices and our actions?
I wonder no longer!
In the fall of 2021, in the lead up to United Nations Climate Conference, COP26, parents globally are rising, being seen, being heard. There is no doubt. As the days count down to the opening of the COP, parents have united under one clear and visible demand:
NO NEW FOSSIL FUELS. PERIOD.
The ask is clear, the demand is strong and powerful. It will take brave leaders to face fossil fuel companies head on and tell them no more – no more tax credits, no more subsidies, no more permits to drill on public lands, no more government assistance – period.
In 2021, the message from climate scientists is also clear.
In August 2021, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in its sixth assessment report, stated that: It is UNEQUIVOCAL that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, oceans, and lands.
The United Nations Secretary General has called it “code red” for humanity.
Together, the global parent climate movement, led by Our Kids Climate and Parents for Future Global is taking a delegation of mamas to COP26. Together, these mamas from India, Brazil, Poland, South Africa, Nigeria, the USA and the UK, representing us all, will demand that world leaders stop all new fossil fuel infrastructure, mining, and more. NO NEW FOSSIL FUELS. PERIOD.
