Why One.Five?

In 2015, at COP21, 195 countries plus the European Union committed themselves through the Paris Agreement to keeping the increase in global average temperature well below 2°C with respect to pre-industrial levels, and to continue efforts to limit that temperature increase to 1.5°C, recognizing that this would considerably reduce the risks and effects of climate change. However, in 2019 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published a report detailing the different scientific arguments for considering the great importance of limiting the increase to only 1.5°C, and not to 2°C throughout the 21st century, because at the level of impacts on the planet and human life, these two limits have great differences. 

The current estimates are not very encouraging, since global public policies for the mitigation and adaptation of climate change suggest that the increase in average temperature will reach between 2° and 5°C during this century, a global temperature that would break all the energy balance we have on Earth. This is why "The challenge of the century" was born, which seeks to ensure that the average temperature does not increase by more than 1.5°C. It is a challenge that breaks any border and must reach every corner of the planet. 

We believe that this information should reach all people and organizations to raise awareness about global warming and take care of the planet in a contagious way. Achieving this is possible!
