1Planet4All is a campaign across 12 European countries that will inspire a generation of youth activists to lead our fight against the global climate crises. It is an alliance of 14 International NGOs working in some of the most fragile, climate-affected countries. In order to fight the climate crisis, the alliance aims to hold politicians, elected officials and corporations to account on their Paris Climate Agreement pledges.
It will also challenge behaviours and attitudes that fuel the climate crises, such as poor recycling targets and household food wasting. It will also amplify the voices of the those most affected by extremes in weather in the Global South, who area already living with effects of climate change.
Importantly, 1Planet4All with promote values of climate justice, solidarity, stewardship, dignity and equality.
Take a look at our video below to find out more.
In the next three years, the alliance aims to reach 13,700,000 people through digital and traditional media channels, while also engaging over 8 million youth on climate action issues. It hopes to train 147,940 young leaders in 12 EU member states to become agents of change on climate action and to support 26,380 young people to develop concrete actions on climate change at local, national and International levels.
All of 1Planet4All's work will be evidence-based and will promote activism on both an indviual and collective level. Throughout this time, the alliance will be calmly calling for urgent action on climate change.
