Who is Uniting?
We’re the people, businesses, and organizations that understand that we have to work together in cooperation and synergy – Uniting for Action – to scale our solutions big and broad enough to effectively address the current and future challenges in our communities and in our world.
In the face of the powerful forces shaping our current world, if we want something different, we have to take massive, coordinated actions – on a much bigger scale than we have been.
What actions are you willing to take to create the world you want to live in?
Start by joining those of us Uniting for Action!
A coordinated series of large-scale events designed to:
- create public and media attention around COP23 - the United Nations Climate Change Conference
- elevate climate awareness and urgency
- grow the scale of our society's climate response
- activate a network of advocates
- organize massive, coordinated actions that inspire us to create a sustainable society
The Rallies for Action are the high-visibility, attention-getting, organizing centerpieces of the Month for Action. The Rallies will bring everyone together, connecting us all into a network Uniting for Action, taking sustained, massive, coordinated actions in order to help guide society back onto a sustainable path.
The first part of the Marches for Action are the high-energy release valves for all of our pent-up emotions and frustrations. The second half of the marches will be devoted to reinforcing the actions that we are all willing to take to proactively create the world that we want to live in.
Watch for Action is a social media campaign for COP23 – The United Nations Climate Change Conference. Online tools will be provided for tuning into news and developments from the conference, encouraging learning and sharing via videos, articles, and resources.
