Action/2015 is a global citizens’ movement calling for pivotal change in 2015 for the future of people and the planet. action/2015 is comprised of 1300+ organizations and coalitions from over 140 countries. action/2015’s success could lead to transformative outcomes, such as:
An end to poverty in all its forms and development and economic systems that benefit everyone – not only the few.
An end to the soaring levels of inequalities and discrimination which destroy the lives of many, especially women and girls.
Ensuring that everyone’s fundamental rights are met and realized, including access to nutritious food, clean water, essential services and decent employment An accelerated transition to 100% renewable energy so that a safe climate and sustainable economy – with all its benefits for people and planet – is possible.
A world where everyone can participate and hold their leaders accountable.
We envision a transformational shift that ensures gender justice and enables everyone to live their lives in dignity, free from hunger and from the fear of violence, oppression, discrimination or injustice in a way that protects the planetary systems required for survival of life on earth.
