Circul8 is excited to be working with WWF, with support from Greenpeace, GetUp, Earth Hour, AYCC, Oxfam, Australian Conservation Foundation, 350 Australia and 1 Million Women to create a campaign encouraging people to tweet G20 leaders asking them to include climate change as a stand-alone item on the G20 agenda this weekend.
Introducing the #OnMyAgenda campaign www.onmyagenda.org
Leaders from the major 20 economies of the world are meeting in Brisbane this weekend and climate change is not a stand-alone item on the agenda, despite being discussed at the past eight G20 summits. Climate change is one of the biggest threats to global economies, with G20 countries accounting for 80% of the world’s carbon pollution.
To make our collective voices heard, our OnMyAgenda campaign website, supported by social media, email, billboards and press releases, aims to send a unified message to the G20 leaders, that we want climate change to be put back on the agenda as a stand- alone item.
This morning we released a Thunderclap, sharing thousands of Tweets and Facebook posts at the same time, (much like an online flash mob!) spreading a message through social media that cannot be ignored.
Our website allows tweeters to contact all G20 world leaders at once via Twitter in their native languages, with the message that they should add climate change to their agendas. We urge you to join us and get your voice heard! Sign up and get Tweetin’ here: www.onmyagenda.org
Join us and put climate change #onmyagenda. Our voice is more powerful when we speak as one.
