Blog: Children remind us that refugees and migrants deserve respect, like us all

Too often we put labels on people arriving by boat into Europe and we lose sight of the fact that they are people. In Poznan, children are leading the way in reminding us all that respect and dignity are something we all deserve.

Blog: Nous avons besoin de vous pour dire à nos responsables politiques de changer de cap pour le climat

Combien de personnes faut-il pour sauver un accord mondial sur le climat ? Beaucoup. En fait, nous ne pourrons y parvenir qu’avec une mobilisation massive de citoyennes et citoyens comme vous. Et c’est le moment d’agir !

Blog: We need you: Tell world leaders to change direction for the climate

How many people does it take to rescue a global climate deal? Lots. In fact, we can only do it with massive public pressure from people like you. And the time is now.

The latest round of UN discussions trying to solve the massive issue of climate change ended today. Sadly, this year’s negotiations, in Warsaw, Poland, were something of a farce. As Oxfam’s Executive Director Winnie Byanyima said:

Blog: Por qué encabecé el grupo que abandonó las negociaciones sobre cambio climático de Naciones Unidas

Ayer encabecé el grupo formado por cientos de personas de todo el mundo que abandonó la 19ª conferencia sobre cambio climático de Naciones Unidas en señal de protesta.

Blog: Why I was part of hundreds of people walking out of the UN climate talks

Today I joined hundreds of people from around the world in a walk out of the 19th UN climate talks. Oxfam has been keenly involved in the talks for a long time, fighting to help stop climate change, and to support people affected by it, and every day the urgency for governments to help gets greater.

Blog: End this madness: Start investing in clean energy now

As weary delegates enter week two of the COP19 talks in Warsaw, to wrangle over how to reduce emissions and curb climate change, the Polish government is sponsoring a parallel “International Coal and Climate Summit.” The Summit says it will “discuss the role of coal in the global economy, in the context of the climate change agenda.” Dirty energy such as coal is the single biggest driver of climate change.

Blog: Pourquoi faisons-nous campagne avec les Grosses Têtes en Pologne à la COP19 ?

Vous êtes probablement au courant qu’Oxfam est actuellement présente, dans le froid de Varsovie, à la conférence des Nations unies sur le changement climatique. Mais qu’est-ce que cela signifie et que faisons-nous ici ?

You might know that Oxfam is in chilly Warsaw this November, at the UN climate change talks. But what does that mean, and what are we doing here?
