What is climate change?

Climate change is the large-scale, long-term shift in the planet's weather patterns and average temperatures. It is one of the biggest challenges of our generation. Scientific evidence tells us that the impacts of climate change are rapidly becoming severe.

To keep global temperatures from rising irreversibly, we must all take steps to deliver short, medium and long-term change in our lives.
