Not so long ago, people who cared came together and won the right for women to vote. They ended apartheid and abolished slavery. They saved the Franklin River from a dam and stopped oil rigs in the Great Barrier Reef.
History shows us again and again, when people come together, we can change the world for the better.
This November, right across the world, people from all walks of life are standing together to ask our leaders to cut pollution and set us on the path to a brighter future. There’s so much happening, it’s incredible!
24 hours of reality
Wherever you are, tune in on November 13 for 24 hours of Reality, as influencers and artists join Al Gore to spotlight stories around the globe of people working together to solve climate change.
Tune in between 4 and 7pm AEST for the Australian segment with inspiring interviews and short docos from people in Australia, New Zealand and Oceania, beamed live from Sydney. Put it in your calendar now!
If you’re in Melbourne, join us for a viewing party on Saturday 14 November from 3.30–5pm, at ACF in Carlton.
Last year 17 million people tuned in to watch 24 Hours of Reality and 88.5 million people connected with the #ClimateHope message on social media. This year you can help spread the word using #24Hours and #WhyImWatching.
The biggest climate doorknock ever
That same weekend, to get the word out and build some serious community buzz, we’re also extraordinarily excited to invite you to Australia’s biggest ever climate doorknock day!
On Saturday November 14, people like you will knock on doors all across the country and invite their neighbours to the People’s Climate March.
By knocking on someone’s door, having a friendly conversation and personally inviting them to the People’s Climate March, you are empowering them to get involved. By going beyond your close circles, you are making the movement bigger and more diverse.
Never doorknocked before? That’s ok! No expertise required, just a big smile 🙂 We’ll give you plenty of training, tips and a team. Bring your friends and enjoy the sense of community that comes with getting to know your neighbours.
Sign up now to go doorknocking near you: www.peoplesclimate.org.au/doorknocks/#ACF
And if you haven’t already, make sure you RSVP for the People’s Climate March in a town or city near you!
Together, let’s grow a movement that’s so strong we can change our world for the better.
Thanks for all that you do,
Climate campaign manager
