350.org and its partners are launching an internet platform, “People’s Climate Mobilization(PCM)”, calling for support on the historic People’s Climate March in New York, USA before the Climate Summit of the United Nations.

At the mean time, this is the critical moment for Taiwan for 2014, the year of election for government offices, and yet to see huge attention on environmental issues among all parties and candidates, such as energy, coal, nuclear, and related important issues! As such, Taiwan Youth Climate Coalition (TWYCC), along with PCM -Taiwan team, hereby lauches “Vote for Climate” campaign, urging and supervising candidates’ propositions on climate change. Thus, we are preparing to throw a musical flashmob on Sep 21st, as a kick off, in response to the international mobilization on climate issue. We sincerely invite all concerned citizens, dear friends and beloved families and those who care for climate change to join our cause!

As the election campaigns are raging like a wildfire, we found that issues regarding climate change as well as the environment have received little attention! In order to bring attention to the environment, we will join hand-in-hand with youths in collges and local environmental groups, throwing events with creativity, so as to serve as a platform for communication and resources, to increase the environmental awareness toward climate change of our citizens and push the candidates to take climate actions for a better future.

We aim to “A.C.T.” on 3 goals:

  • “Activate” – With the spread of decentralized actions, we will be able to draw public attention to climate issues and to activate citizens’ awareness to vote for a pro-environmental candidate.

  • “Cultivate” – Motivate youth-based societies, grassroot groups among universities as well as local groups to be focalizing contact points for the long-term climate fight.

  • “Turn-over” – After spreading the messages and raising the awareness of the public, we can have more accesses to influencing the policy-making for candidates toward both mitigation and adaptation.
