Have your Sei – the Pacific Climate Warriors Declaration

We are calling for world leaders to commit to building a better, more just world for ourselves and for generations to come. Climate change is real and impacting now, and it’s imperative that we stand up for the Pacific, and the global community, and act now to avoid further climate catastrophe. This COP should be about the people, not the profits and the polluters. We call on the world to:

  • End the era of fossil fuels and move to 100% renewable energy.

  • Support the immediate delivery of finance needed for countries already facing irreversible loss and damage.

  • Kick the big polluters out of the climate talks.

  • Do what is needed to limit warming to 1.5°C.

Fidschi is having the presidency of the world climate conference COP23 this year. But while governments will negotiate behing closed doors in Bonn from Nov 3rd to Nov 17th, the Pacific Climate Warriors, representing activists from 12 island nations in the Pacific, have decided to take action by themselves, calling for climate justice and strong actions to stop global warming. They have launched the Pacific Climate Warrior Declaration on Climate Change that every supporter can sign.
