Dear mik, 

We can't just fight for climate action, we must live it too. 
 
Last week I went to Marrakech for the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP22),
 
I spoke at the Women Leaders and Global Transformational Summit about the need for a lifestyle revolution and a total transformation of the way we live. I talked about the power we have as individuals and as a collective to make the change. 
 
There are great things happening globally in the fight against climate change; China is on a fast track for a renewable energy future, Bhutan is completely carbon negative, and The Paris Agreement has entered into effect. But with everything on the table, there's still a gap. Countries need to dig deeper if we have any chance of keeping the world below 1.5 degrees of warming. 
 
Which is why we must rise above any political system and just get on with it.
 
Just imagine if entire populations cut energy usage by 20%, ate half as much meat, stopped over-consuming, or took public transport instead of driving their cars solo. Imagine if we all divested from banks and institutions that invest in fossil fuels and used every single dollar we spend to shape the kind of world we want to live in.

There's no doubt that changing how we live is challenging; we are ingrained in a society of over-consumption, and often detached from the impacts of our lives. To truly, profoundly, and honestly change how we live, we must emotionally connect with what is at stake. We must peel back the lid on the culture of convenience that we live in, and take ownership for our actions.

And that’s the essence of 1 Million Women.

In 2017 we are launching our new, free to download, App for zero carbon living. We are rolling out our new Roadshow, showing women everywhere a new way of living. The world needs a lifestyle revolution and 1 Million Women is leading the charge.

Which is why we need you more than ever.
We are now a movement of 500,000 women fighting the climate crisis through the way we live.  But we need more.

Please share 1 Million Women with everyone you know.

If you haven't yet, can you like us on Facebook and invite five of your friends to do the same?
Follow us on Twitter and Instagram and let's together grow our movement, so that by the time our new App and Roadshow launches in 2017 we have doubled in size.

The bigger our community, the louder our voice!

A million thanks,
Natalie Isaacs
