Julia Jackson, Founder of Grounded said: "We are inundated with messages that it is “game over” for our civilization and it’s hard not to get stuck in the doom-and-gloom. However, there are hundreds of viable solutions that can mitigate the worst impacts of our climate emergency. Climate Action Live is a day to manifest climate action around the world, focused on real action that the global community can take. The time is now; join us June 21st to act to protect the Earth."
