Leaders from all over the world arrived in Paris this weekend to participate in the most important climate summit yet: COP21.

Video: World Leaders Make COP21 Count

The stakes couldn’t be higher and to highlight the cause and focus everyone’s minds on the critical job in hand, The Elders have produced a short 2-minute film. It is a call to action for all leaders, and especially those attending the Conference in Paris.

The video features four of The Elders:
Mr. Kofi Annan – Chair of The Elders
President Jimmy Carter
President Mary Robinson
President Ernesto Zedillo

Mary Robinson says of her five grandchildren: "I like to think that they’ll look back 35 years to 2015 and say, “Thank goodness, they made the decisions that put us on a better course, where we would be safe beneath 2 degrees Celsius.”"

Kofi Annan on future generations: “I cannot say that I am very proud of what my generation has done and what we’re going to leave them. We still have time to do something and we cannot afford to fail.”

Without a legal, international, fair and equitable agreement, future generations will not be living in a safe world. A shift towards renewable energy is essential for a sustainable world.
