Call out for letters & artwork for the Paris Climate Confere

In December world leaders will meet to decide on urgent action to address climate change at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP21, 30 November – 11 December). It has been described as ‘the most important diplomatic gathering ever’ and ‘a last chance for humanity’.

None will bear the consequences of a failure to act decisively on climate more than future generations, yet the voices of children will not be heard. That’s why the Climate Guardian Angels are travelling to Paris to hand-deliver thousands of letters and artworks by Australian children to UN delegates.

These letters and artworks especially created by Australian children and teenagers (16 years and under) will ask international leaders to secure their future by urgently transitioning global energy systems away from dirty and dangerous fossil fuels towards zero pollution, renewable energy sources by 2050. We’d like to represent the feelings of as many young Australians as we can as their voices deserve to be heard.

Please mail all letters and/or artworks to:

Climate Guardians

C/o Friends of the Earth

PO Box 222

Fitzroy VIC 3065
