In 2007, most people around the world hadn't yet heard of climate change, nor did they know that countries had been negotiating for over a decade to find common ground and sign a global agreement to solve it. That year, GCCA was born out of the realisation that public pressure around the world was needed in order to help push nations to agree to a viable plan.
In 2009, GCCA and its member organisations mobilised millions of people around the world in the run-up to the Copenhagen UN climate summit through the tcktcktck campaign. GCCA's leadership role as catalyst, connector and facilitator continued through the 2015 Paris UN climate conference. Since then, as a silent partner, we have helped a community of over 470 climate campaigning organisations activate their supporters and align, aggregate and amplify their work.
Now, the Paris Agreement that includes all nations has been signed and the world has woken-up to the reality that is climate change – but we're still a long way from overcoming the threat.
A historic shift is already underway as communities around the globe race to transform the ways they power their lives, use energy, and protect themselves from climate impacts. Effective and affordable solutions exist, but they need to be applied and scaled... quickly. We all have a stake in the shift...and we all can contribute to the solution.
