After holding two successful Rise For Climate events in Uganda;- Children’s Climate change march and the Green Festival 2018, Little Hands Go Green founder and CEO Joseph Masembe last weekend on Saturday joined other environmentalists at the Rise For Climate March in San Francisco.
Thousands of activists marched from the Embarcadero to Civic Center to take a stand against climate change.
The march came days before world leaders, researchers and activists arrive in San Francisco for the Global Climate Action Summit, organized by the UN and Governor Jerry Brown.
The Global Climate Action Summit will start on 13th September with a two-day program of invitation-only events, report launches and climate commitment announcements aimed at “Taking Ambition to the Next Level.” It will end with a Call to Global Climate Action and the Summit outcomes on Sept. 14, asking national governments to raise their ambition by 2020 and looking forward to the UN secretary-general’s leaders’ Summit happening in New York in September 2019.
Throughout its program, the Global Climate Action Summit will bring together state and local governments, businesses, and citizens from around the world to showcase climate action taking place, demonstrating how the tide has turned in the race against climate change and inspiring deeper national commitments in support of the Paris Agreement.
The Summit’s five headline challenge areas are Healthy Energy Systems, Inclusive Economic Growth, Sustainable Communities, Land and Ocean Stewardship, and Transformative Climate Investments.
