Our world in your hands

By Climate Champions | July 15, 2021

If you could write a letter to world leaders, what would you say?

In November, heads of state, climate experts and campaigners will be brought together to agree coordinated action to tackle the climate crisis.

COP26 will be the world’s best chance of building a cleaner, heathier, safer, more resilient and egalitarian world for all 7.8 billion of us — that we so desperately need.

But the climate crisis affects, and will affect, different countries, regions, sectors, communities, ecosystems and individuals in very different ways.

The Climate Champions believe that everyone should have a stake in the future of our world.

If you feel you can give a voice to the underrepresented, unheard and/or most affected by climate change we want to hear from you.

You might be a farmer, fisher, scientist or faith leader — whatever you are and whoever you represent — help us elevate the broad spectrum of needs and hopes that must be addressed if we are to tackle the challenges before us. 

Letters will be posted on the Climate Champions website in the run up to COP26.

We will endeavour to publish all letters which meet the brief.

Submissions should be no more than 1000 words long and can be sent via email to Charlotte Owen-Burge at charlotteob@climatechampions.team from now until October 22 2021. Poems/multimedia content welcome.

Please include your name, country and a short sentence about your profession or experience which relates to your submission.

Submissions which promote an individual, company or organization will not be accepted.

We can only rise to the challenges of the climate crisis by working together and listening to each other.
