UN Climate Campaign sees Celebrities and Activists share quotes about Nature. Yemi Alade,Cara Delevingne,Vanessa Najare amongst others..

On Friday June 12, the United Nations Development Programme teamed up with social media platform The Good Quote for their Mission 1.5 campaign. 

The Mission 1.5 campaign, which aims to address the disconnect between global citizens and government on climate action, brought together film-stars, musicians, models, sportspeople and young climate campaigners from around the world to share their favourite quotes about nature on the Instagram platform which boasts over 20 million followers.

This is one of the many activities planned this year as part of the UN’s ‘Time For Nature’, a call to action to combat accelerating species loss and degradation of the natural world.

The line-up  included:

Arizona Muse, Model and Environmental ActivistAman Sharma, Climate activist, and co-founder of Cara Delevingne Actor, Model and Founder of My Eco ResolutionCody Simpson, Musician and UNDP Ocean Advocate Darren Espanto, Musician and UNDP Philippines Youth Advocate Genesis Butler, Climate activist Jayathama Wickramanayake, UN Youth EnvoyMaggie Q, Actor, Model and Activist Michelle Yeoh, Actor and UNDP Goodwill Ambassador Nico Rosberg, Formula One World Champion and Sustainability Entrepreneur Paloma Costa, Lawyer and Climate Activist Shruti Haasan, Actor and Musician Vanessa Nakate, Founder of Youth for Future Africa Maggie Q, Actor, Model and Activist Michelle Yeoh, Actor and UNDP Goodwill Ambassador Nico Rosberg and Yemi Alade, Musician and UNDP Advocate.

Mission 1.5 is named after the collective effort to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C, the temperature which scientists agree is safe, and based around a mobile game of the same name that educates people about climate policy and provides a platform for people, many of whom are not of voting age, to vote on the climate action they want to see their governments adopt. 

These votes are processed by experts at the University of Oxford and will be delivered by the UNDP to world leaders before the end of the year.

The game has already been played by over 1.2 million people, and it is expected to become the largest ever survey on climate change.
