According to new research, almost a billion extra people face a life of extreme poverty if leaders duck key decisions on poverty, inequality and climate change due to be taken at two crucial summits
- In September – The Millennium Development Goals will be replaced by a new set of global goals – the Sustainable Development Goals – an opportunity to end all forms of poverty and inequality and tackle environmental destruction.
- In December – Leaders will meet to adopt a new global agreement on climate change – a crucial step towards a safer planet.
With billions more continuing to face a life of hardship. Action/2015 is calling on local and world leaders to take urgent action to halt man-made climate change, eradicate poverty and address inequality. Please register your support at http://www.action2015.org/
