Land Rights Now – Earth Day Mobilisation
Secure Community Land Rights Now to Fight Climate Change and Protect our Planet This 22 April, the growing Land Rights Now movement will come together to show that secure land rights are central to fighting climate change. “Together we can push national governments, investors, and companies to recognize that securing land rights is essential for delivering on the promises of the Paris Agreement and keeping global warming under 1.5 degrees. At this time of grave political, economic, and social turmoil, we can promote secure land rights for millions of Indigenous Peoples and local communities as a key solution to build a more fair and inclusive world.” Launching on 22 April for one week, the campaign will mobilize and link with other movements and initiatives including the March for Science, the 10-year anniversary of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and the People’s Climate March on 29 April. There are more than 40 mobilisation actions taking place in 27 countries – see this map of action.
