As hosts, it is our collective responsibility to make this COP15 a historic moment by adopting a new global framework to stop nature’s decline and live in harmony with nature.
COP15 Montreal presents an occasion to make protecting nature part of our collective DNA.
We can all be proud not only of our heritage (Quebec is home to 3% of the planet’s fresh water, while Canada contains 9% of the world’s forests), but also of our ability to mobilize as a society, as demonstrated by the last major climate march in 2019, with more than 500,000 people taking to the streets.
Protecting life means protecting our natural heritage as well as our health. In order to get there, we need to mobilize on an unprecedented scale to lead the way towards action and concrete gains.
