The Amazon is going up in smoke. Greenland is melting. And now the Bahamas have been ravaged by a monster storm! Climate change isn’t a distant threat. It’s happening right now.

That’s why, ahead of a crucial global climate summit, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg is leading children out of their classrooms and onto the streets, in a worldwide push to demand leaders meet this climate emergency with an urgent switch to 100% clean energy.

And they’re calling on us to join them -- parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters… let’s show massive public support for these brave kids as they fight for the future of life on Earth.

When this is huge, Avaaz will make sure all our voices are heard by key leaders ahead of the summit with a massive advocacy and campaigning push demanding a safe, sustainable future for our children and generations to come. Sign now and share with everyone!
