Our Climate? It's Time to Talk About It
by Marina Azcarate
The #COP21 climate talks will start on November 30 and last until December 11.
This event is crucial to our future as it may well be the last chance for countries to agree on legally binding agreements before it’s too late. Organizations around the world have been working for years to make ordinary citizen voices heard during the event.
and members of the Climate Action Network
are pioneering an instant platform for information-sharing on a global scale, including live behind-the-scenes updates from the official negotiations. This "Global Live Chat" will take place on FireChat, a free mobile app that enables public debate on a large scale and with a whole new level of interactivity.

FireChat creates an instant forum that is open to everyone and expands instantly to the entire world. Hundreds of thousands of people, from Taipei to Hong Kong, Moscow, and Kuala Lumpur have used it to support democracy. It has been called “the citizen’s network” because it’s a powerful tool for very large groups of people to accomplish their goals collectively. FireChat
scales infinitely and lets tens of thousands of people share messages and pictures in real time. It is open to NGOs, journalists, campaigners and citizens everywhere in the world. The more people use it, the better it gets. It’s completely free. Simply share this link on email, SMS, social media, or a blog post in order to invite others to join: http://firech.at/ParisAgreement
