COP25, Ágora, Green Zone, Madrid, Spain
”It is no longer certain that nations will live up to the commitments they made in the Paris Agreement. Fortunately, states, regions, cities, and the private sector are stepping up to provide the leadership the world needs.Arnold SchwarzeneggerFormer Governor of California and Founding Chair R20
”Our goal is to expand our scope, hence to open COP25 to a wider range of actors. To achieve this, we are strongly incorporating the participation of non-state actors, including the private sector. We believe they can contribute significantly to this transformation, towards sustainable development.Carolina SchmidtMinister of the Environment and COP25 Presidency
The commitments of COP 21 or the Paris Climate Conference alone have not been enough to tackle global warming. At the current rate, the planet is heading towards a 3°C temperature increase by the year 2100, well above the 1.5°C target. Despite many positive initiatives, the clock is ticking and climate change is occurring at a faster pace than any action taken against it. Latin America is the region with the greatest biodiversity on the planet, and Spanish-speaking countries have a unique opportunity to unite social and environmental efforts in the face of the current climate emergency and advance a sustainable transformation. Thousands of cities in more than 20 countries with more than 570 million people can stop the clock.
The summit is led by the Chilean Government, Regions of Climate Action (R20), CC35 Secretariat, Sachamama, Advanced Leadership Foundation, and the International Office of Former President of Ecuador, Rosalía Arteaga.See more
