Launched by the United Nations in September 2018 by more than 30 founding media organizations – encompassing more than 100 media and entertainment outlets – the SDG Media Compact seeks to inspire media and entertainment companies around the world to leverage their resources and creative talent to advance the Sustainable Development Goals.
IN FOCUS: CLIMATE CONFERENCE
World leaders will gather at the Climate Conference (COP24) in Katowice, Poland, from 2 to 14 December, to finalize the rulebook to implement the Paris Agreement on climate change, the landmark agreement that was adopted in 2015. In the agreement, countries committed to take action to limit global warming to well under 2°C this century. At the conference, the UN will invite people to voice their views and launch a campaign to encourage every day climate action.
COP24 is an important milestone that will help countries formalize the process for increasing and accelerating ambition to reduce emissions and build climate resilience.
We will only succeed in limiting climate change if everyone is involved. On 3 December, the United Nations will launch a new campaign to inspire climate action leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) technology. The Climate Action Messenger Bot ActNow.bot, deployed on the United Nations Facebook page during COP24—will make it easier than ever before for people to learn what actions they can take to tackle climate change.
