The evidence for rapid climate change is undeniable. We already see its effects all around the world. However, climate change continues to move faster than our efforts to address it and certain groups and communities such as women, children, and indigenous peoples are more vulnerable than others. This is particularly relevant for developing countries as they will suffer the most from rise in temperatures. The extreme weather events that we have been witnessing over the last few years will be more and more frequent.
Climate change resilience starts with awareness and knowledge both on institutional and individual level. We need to invest more in climate change education to be able to tackle it more effectively.
UN CC:Learn is launching a new hashtag that promotes global climate awareness and encourages people to learn more about the various challenges and realities of global warming. #CCFacts will showcase data and information related to climate change effects as well as all mitigation and adaptation opportunities across different communities, countries, and sectors.
Stay tuned for #CCFacts and don’t forget to share your UN CC:Learn Certificate adding the hashtag #CCLearn Alumni. You can also share your own climate resilience stories by adding the hashtag #ThinkClimate or #ActClimate.
