Planet B campaign in Islamabad, Pakistan.

Climate justice: There is no Planet B

BY RINA SAEED KHAN

Last Friday morning, Islamabad’s busy Jinnah Avenue was closed off to motor cars and opened for cyclists only.

Around a hundred young people from the capital city took part in the “Go Green Rally!” organised by the Heinrich Boll Stiftung (HBS) in collaboration with the Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI).

The event was part of HBS’s ‘Planet B Campaign’, which was initiated in August this year, given that the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference 2015 is to be held in Paris in December.

The campaign promotes the idea of “There is no planet B — let’s change our policies, not the climate” with the aim to spread awareness at all levels of policy formulation and implementation on climate change.
