Without question, humanity has accelerated climate change. The change has been detrimental, contributing to preventable injuries, illnesses and deaths that often disproportionately affect the most vulnerable among us, including our youngest generation, impoverished people, people with disabilities, and Indigenous and island peoples.
To act on this crisis, CU Boulder, United Nations Human Rights and the Right Here, Right Now Global Climate Alliance have committed to addressing global human rights climate issues and finding solutions we can act upon.
We need to do a lot more to act on the moral imperative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and acknowledge the disproportionate impact on many global communities. This requires a new level of cooperation that has never existed before, and the Right Here, Right Now Global Climate Alliance understands this challenge.”
