Ban + Plan + Expand
After passing a Climate Emergency declaration, take the next steps towards Climate Mobilization.
From Los Angeles to the Philippines, millions of people have joined the Climate Emergency movement and are leading the call for a WWII-scale mobilization to restore a safe climate. Since 2016, 1000 governments in 19 countries across the world have declared a climate emergency within their jurisdictions.
But for the transformative power of climate emergency declarations to be fully realized, governments must shift into emergency mode, acting quickly to reorient their priorities toward a rapid elimination and drawdown of greenhouse gas emissions through mobilizing all available resources at emergency speed.
Once in emergency mode, government officials have the responsibility to expand the Climate Emergency Movement downwards, upwards, and outwards, implementing climate mobilization programs and building public, regional, national, and international support for the World War II-scale mobilization we need to restore a safe climate for everyone.
Following a climate emergency declaration, governments at all levels can take the next steps towards climate mobilization through Ban + Plan + Expand — a strategy for immediate mobilization action to restore a safe climate.
