FAST ON THE FIRST OF THE MONTH - EVERY MONTH! (2014-15)
ClimateFast joins in the world-wide initiative, FAST FOR THE CLIMATE. The Fast for the Climate movement was started at the UN climate negotiations in Warsaw in November 2013 by Yeb Saño, Philippines' climate commissioner, after Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda had just devastated the Philippines. The text of Yeb Saño's speech may be read at: http://t.co/dkZscrnTkK
This ongoing fast seeks to send a message to governments that people from all walks of life, from all corners of the globe, expect climate action. We will fast on the first day of every month, until countries agree to a comprehensive, fair climate action plan that puts the world on a pathway to phase out carbon pollution.
