The action/2015 was recently launched nationwide. Nigeria was not an exception as civil society groups, institutions and governments joined in the global campaign.
Many of these were spearheaded by 15-year-olds – a constituency who will be among the most affected by vital agreements expected to be reached this year.
Action/2015 is calling on the public to join them in their calls to ensure world leaders commit to a better world. Throughout 2015, the campaign will provide ways for everyone everywhere to get involved in influencing the outcomes of these global debates that could achieve: an end to poverty in all its forms; the meeting of fundamental rights, tackling inequality and discrimination; an accelerated transition to 100% renewable energy; and, a world where everyone can participate and hold their leaders accountable.
