Building Momentum for Nature: Coalition Action


bold text that reads hashtag nature now

As the African proverb tells us, if you want to go far, go together. In that spirit, the Nature Now campaign supports and connects with a number of coalition efforts to raise the rallying cry for nature and climate and celebrate leadership across governments, the private sector and local communities. Here’s a snapshot of some of the efforts we are part of, followed by a look at collective influence from various campaigns and initiatives. The aggregator shows a groundswell of support and demand for global leaders to make bold decisions. Every action counts!


 

The Race is On: Leaders’ Pledge for Nature

More than 80 countries have signed the Leaders’ Pledge for Nature, committing to reverse biodiversity loss by 2030. Given the head-of-state announcements that are part of this pledge, it has the highest level of influence going into the CBD and UNFCC CoPs. The other coalition efforts all ladder up to and support it.

Nature Positive – A Global Goal for Nature

For climate, the world has a clear net zero emissions goal. But what’s the goal for nature? A number of orgs have agreed that we need an overarching goal, or apex, to halt and reverse nature loss by 2030.

Voice for the Planet

If the planet had a voice, it would cry ‘help’. People around the world are adding their voice to call for urgent action. #VoiceForThePlanet will bring your voice to global leaders via the United Nations at critical nature and climate conferences in 2021.

A Movement for Nature 

This tool aggregates the numbers from various collective campaigns and initiatives to demonstrate the support and demand from around the world for global leaders to take bold decisions. We want to ensure the future health of our planet, and thereby our own, through collective bold decisions at the UN biodiversity COP#15 and Climate COP#26 this year. The data will run from Jan 2021 – Dec 2021, and is updated monthly. We hope it will show an upward trend in participation as we move towards these important global negotiations.
