ENDORSEMENTS

"Every corner of society needs to act to deal with the climate crisis, and this campaign is a good reminder of that most basic fact."
Bill McKibben
American author and environmentalist, Co-founder and Senior Advisor at 350.org.
"Sustainable development requires that we organize our society and way of living in a way that respects the boundaries of our planet. Economic growth based on increasing resource use is not a viable path. We must learn to live with much less resource consumption, especially in developed countries. This difficult systemic and cultural change can only succeed if we all take responsibility for it, which is why I support the #AllForClimate campaign's call on all societal actors to act as activists in the transition."
Katherine Richardson, forsker i Earth System Science, leder af Sustainability Science Center ved Københavns Universitet, medlem af Klimarådet og medforfatter til FN’s 2019 Global Sustainability Development Report.

"What's needed is climate activism that's rooted in science rather than wishful thinking and politics-as-usual. The science tells us that dramatic reductions in GHG emissions are unlikely to be achieved without cuts in overall energy usage--primarily by people who currently use energy at high rates. That's a challenge that too few governments are willing even to acknowledge, much less address. Yet the evidence shows that high quality of life doesn't require endless consumption growth."
Richard Heinberg
Senior Fellow, Post Carbon Institute
"Our leaders are led by fossil fuels lobbyists and misled by economists. We need action from below to force action on climate change."
Steve Keen
Economist, Honorary Professor, UCL & ISRS Distinguished Research Fellow
"Inequality is a massive roadblock in the way of achieving sustainable wellbeing and tackling the climate emergency. But there are so many ways we can start to reduce inequality and unlock a much better quality of life for all people as well as the planet. We all need to learn what we can do, how we can help, and how we can stand up for the future."
Kate Pickett
Deputy Director of the Centre for Future Health at the University of York, co-founder of The Equality Trust and co-author of a book about equality and wellbeing.
"Human society has reached the limit of how much pressure it can put on the biosphere. Climate change is accelerating and species are disappearing at a rate that makes biologists talk about that we are in the Sixth Mass Extinction. At the same time, we can see that the political system is stuck in yesterday's world, trying to maintain an unsustainable growth economy, while large parts of the business community have found the painting brushes and are busy greenwashing their products. In a situation like this, our only option is that citizens mobilise and cultivate a green transformation of society from bottom up. For that to happen, we must become aware of our ethical responsibilities and at the same time find the courage and hope that enables us to take action in our everyday lives - both as consumers and as politically active citizens. #Allforclimate is therefore not just an idealistic wish, but a compelling necessity if we are to begin to lift our responsibility for the future - both our own future and the future of the rest of the biosphere which we humans are a part of."
Mickey Gjerris
Associate Professor in Bioethics, PhD, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
"AllForClimate is a strong citizens' initiative that reflects the need to treat the climate crisis holistically. The switch to a green economy is a cultural switch. Therefore, it is crucial that more and more citizens actively participate in the transition and help pull society in the right direction."

"The question is 'what can I do?'. The answer is: be in action wherever you have influence - and realise just how much influence you have. Whether you're a CEO or the newest recruit, a teacher or a student in class, a community organiser or a next-door neighbour, a mayor or a local resident, a 17-year-old or a 71-year-old. Each one of us can reach and inspire our peers in ways that others cannot. And that makes a change-maker of us all. Run with it."
Kate Raworth
Author of Doughnut Economics: seven ways to think like a 21st-century economist
"It is often said that the climate crisis demands a rapid and systemic transformation of everything: our economies, our businesses, our lifestyles, our infrastructure and technology - and all of this is true. But above all, this crisis requires that each of us become active in the fight against the causes of this crisis. How to do it ? All For Climate aims to explain, in a clear and simple way, how to act in each of our spheres of life. Without this civic commitment from each and every one, the actions taken by our governments and our economies will continue to be largely insufficient and accelerate the disaster. It is high time to get started!"
Julia Steinberger
Professor at the Institute of Geography & Sustainability, Faculty of Geosciences & Environment, University of Lausanne, lead author of the 3rd IPCC working group
"Climate change is not just politicians and diplomats' business, on the one hand, and environmental associations and committed citizens' business on the other. It must concern all human organisations, at all levels: unions, media, companies, administrations ... that is why I support the #AllForClimate campaign. Let’s not be afraid to shake up, to question dogmas, received ideas, our habits. We have, collectively, much more to gain than to lose."
Philippe Bihouix
Philippe Bihouix, Engineer, CEO of the AREP group, author of The Age of Low Tech., France
"In the current situation in terms of climate change and atmospheric carbon accumulation (420 ppm, as in the Pliocene), clinging to our economic model and our lifestyles has become suicidal. Fewer objects and less infrastructure neither condemn us to less well-being, nor to more injustice, on the contrary."
Dominique Bourg
Honorary professor at Unil (Switzerland) Publication Director for lapenseeecologique.com, partner of the Zoein Foundation, France
"The most prominent economists are obstructing a solution to the climate crisis by clinging to the idea of economic growth as a necessary and natural goal. The climate crisis is caused by growth, and continued growth exacerbates the crisis. That is why I wholeheartedly support the campaign's goal of creating an economy that does not depend on growth."
Peter Nielsen, lektor i politisk økonomi, Roskilde Universitet
Peter Nielsen
Associate Professor of Political Economics at Roskilde University, Denmark
"In a few years, the consequences of the climate crisis will become much more visible and will challenge all parts of the society that we value today. It is about our safety, and about creating security for our children. That is why we need to get everyone involved in the fight against global warming."
Frederik Sandby
Head of office at 350 Denmark
"#AllForClimate is an innovative and significant contribution to creating the broad popular support needed to solve the climate crisis. Without a strong commitment from citizens and civil society, we will not be able to achieve the reductions in greenhouse gases needed to counteract the rising global temperatures. At the same time, citizen involvement can help create changes in behaviour that, at individual and collective level, will make our society sustainable for future generations. Together, we must create knowledge and mobilisation, and this can best be done through education and democratic processes."

Professor with special responsibilities, Department of Political Science, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
