Greenpeace “Sign On” Campaign

The world is on the brink of runaway climate change and it’s time to get serious. That’s why this year, Greenpeace is launching the most urgent, ambitious and important campaign we’ve ever undertaken.

It’s called Sign On.

We’re asking John Key to Sign On for urgent action on climate change when he meets with other world leaders in Copenhagen this December, for what could be the most important meeting in history.

As a leader of a developed country, John Key needs to Sign On to a 40 percent by 2020 emissions reduction target*.  This is what must happen if we are to save the climate.

(*Interested in the fine print? Developed countries must make cuts of 40 per cent on their 1990 emissions by 2020)

From Lucy Lawless, Cliff Curtis and Keisha Castle-Hughes through to Stephen Tindall, Geoff Ross and Jim Salinger, Kiwis are uniting in this call to action.

Sign On - The World Needs Us

By December, we need hundreds of thousands of other New Zealanders to have joined them, which is where you come in.

We’ve set up an interactive campaign website, and automatically set you up with a Sign On account and username.

Your support has helped us to achieve much for the environment.  Yet, in our long history of campaigning, there has never been a moment where we needed you to get involved as we do now.

We need you to do one simple, but hugely important thing: Click here to get your password or paste this URL into your browser

Log in now and use the invitation form to invite as many of your family, friends and colleagues as you can to Sign On and get behind this campaign.  It’s only by building a huge groundswell of support that we can win.

Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be keeping you updated, and providing you with more opportunities to make a difference to this campaign.

Together we can provide John Key with a strong mandate to do the right thing in Copenhagen.  It’s now or never.

Thank you for your support,
