Our leaders are asleep at the wheel
We urgently need a massive effort to reverse global warming and protect humanity and the natural world from collapse. Starting a Climate Emergency Program in your city or county is a critical first step.
Join the international grassroots movement of thousands of communities demanding their governments acknowledge the climate emergency and launch programs to end emissions by 2030.
Cities are taking on the ambitious goal of eliminating emissions at emergency speed. Read a recent report from the Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance on emergency-speed action after a climate emergency declaration in 15 cities around the world.

What is a Climate Emergency response?
A Declaration of Climate Emergency is a piece of legislation passed by a governing body such as a city council, a county board of supervisors, a state legislature, or even a national government. It puts the government on record in support of taking emergency action to reverse global warming. Resolutions vary around the world, with many governments including local climate impacts and new climate targets in their resolution.
A Climate Emergency program is a comprehensive package of follow-up steps — sometimes adopted through a climate action plan — that puts a city or county on track to reach zero emissions by 2030. Example policy measures are in the toolkit you can download above.
For climate groups, starting a Climate Emergency campaign can serve as a powerful rallying call to attract hundreds of new members and build power to demand change.
Use our Climate Emergency Declaration template and resources on other Climate Emergency policies to support the campaign for a Climate Emergency Declaration and follow-up policies in your municipality. While we encourage the template be edited to meet local conditions and specific local government situations, we ask that you retain the core demands when advocating for a Climate Emergency .
