Highlights from GCAS
Rise for Climate mobilization
 

Dear WWF Activist,

As one of our dedicated supporters, I wanted to send you a quick update on our work around the Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS), which took place in San Francisco just two weeks ago.

Leaders in business, local government, and from across communities continue to step up around climate action. Under the umbrella of the 30x30 Forest, Food and Land Challenge, WWF and over 100 NGOs, businesses, state and local governments, indigenous groups and communities issued 17 commitments to advance the forest, food and land agenda. Land, and how we use it, is the second largest source of emissions, but can deliver up to 30% of the climate solutions needed to meet the targets set by the Paris Agreement.

Business and local leaders weren't the only ones making gains for climate action: An estimated 30,000 people took to the streets of San Francisco to speak out for strong climate action. Behind the WWF banner were 200+ WWF staff and supporters marching through San Francisco, with Panda Ambassadors mobilizing in more than 10 cities across the country. Thank you to everyone who marched alongside us.
