1Planet4All

1Planet4All

Do you want to make a difference? Do you want to do more to fight against climate change? Are you interested in finding new ways to live a more sustainable life? If so, 1Planet4All could be the ideal campaign for you!

What is 1Planet4All?

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.

Irish Citizen Survey

What do young Irish people really think about climate change? In January 2021, we surveyed 1,181 people aged between 18 and 35 on their attitudes to climate change. Check out the video below to see what they said!

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change.

Reports Main Findings include:

It is unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land. Widespread and rapid changes in the atmosphere, ocean, cryosphere and biosphere have occurred. 

Global surface temperature will continue to increase until at least the mid-century under all emissions scenarios considered. Global warming of 1.5°C and 2°C will be exceeded during the 21st century unless deep reductions in carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas emissions occur in the coming decades.

Human-induced climate change is already affecting many weather and climate extremes in every region across the globe. Evidence of observed changes in extremes such as heatwaves, heavy precipitation, droughts, and tropical cyclones, and, in particular, their attribution to human influence, has strengthened since the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5).
