Jochen Zeitz: What the Paris Agreement #Means4Me

In December 2015 the world came together and made a historic agreement to fight climate change. Under the Paris Agreement, 195 nations have agreed to combat climate change and to unleash actions and investment towards a low carbon, resilient and sustainable future.In 2016 comes the work of implementing the agreement and turning it into real climate action. This will only be successful if everyone fully supports it and helps bring it to lifeā€”from national, regional and local leaders; from investors and businesses to citizens who desire to live in a safe and prosperous world, and who want to actively shape that world.

This is why the UNFCCC is asking everyone to share what the Paris Agreement means for them. For B Team Co-Founder and Co-Chair Jochen Zeitz, the Paris Agreement serves finally as a hope for our world to come together and transition to a clean energy economy that thrives inside planetary boundaries. Share your own video with what the Paris Agreement means to you and upload it to social media with the #Means4Me.
