At the IPU we believe that climate action begins at home. That’s why we launched our campaign called Parliaments for the Planet in 2023 to mobilize parliaments and parliamentarians to accelerate action on the climate emergency.

Parliaments around the world are taking action on the climate crisis

The world is facing a climate crisis. Parliamentarians see first hand the impact this is having on their communities - from rising temperatures and sea levels to changes in farming seasons and internal migration.

The IPU asks you to take action on the climate crisis by joining our campaign 'Parliaments for the Planet' - download the toolkit, read the reports and create change in your parliament.
