The campaign is part of the UN’s efforts to raise awareness, ambition and action for climate change.

10 July 2019: The UN and Angry Birds are collaborating to support citizen action on climate change. The Angry Birds are encouraging individuals to discover and record everyday actions that can make a difference on climate change by using the UN’s online climate action tool, the ‘ActNow Bot.’

The UN Department of Global Communications (DGC) is collaborating with the UN Foundation and Sony Pictures Entertainment in support of the UN’s ActNow climate campaign, which aims to galvanize individual action on climate change. The campaign is part of the UN’s efforts to raise awareness, ambition and action for climate change and to accelerate implementation of the Paris Agreement on climate change. The campaign features the animated bird and pig characters and voice actors from The Angry Birds Movie 2.

The ActNow Bot is an interactive chatbox on the UN’s ActNow website that connects with users and emphasizes the power of individuals to tackle climate change. The interactive tool suggests ten actions that individuals can take in their daily life to protect the environment and tackle climate change. These actions include saving energy, eating less meat, eating local produce, using reuseable bags and water bottles, “upcycling” clothing, taking five-minute showers, driving less, recycling, turning lights off, and unplugging electronics. Individuals can then record their collective actions to tackle climate change on the website. To date, people have recorded 154,639 climate actions. These actions will be presented at the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit in September 2019.

The UN launched the campaign on the sidelines of the 2019 session of the UN High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF). [UN Press Release] [UN Blog Post] [ActNow Website]
