Richard Branson
Virgin Group Founder
“Taking bold climate action now has the potential to unleash the full power of business and lift millions of people out of poverty at the same time. We're the first generation to recognize this and the last generation that will have this opportunity.”

“For me the two biggest issues are climate change and animal welfare/animal agriculture. And oddly enough animal agriculture is such a contributor to climate change. According to the United Nations, 25% of climate change comes from animal agriculture, so every car, bus, boat, truck, airplane combined has less CO2 and methane emissions than animal agriculture. So to me, one of the easiest way of addressing climate change and potentially remedying climate change is to stop subsidizing animal agriculture.”

“The migrants are not a temporary crisis. The crisis is mounting. There are many war refugees and three times as many climate refugees. All of them are people who can no longer live where they were born. I hope we face reality in time to save ourselves. We will all be migrants soon.”

James Cameron	
Film Director
“Climate change is critical to me because I’m a parent; I feel a sense of responsibility to the future. I’m not going to be around to see its worst effects, which are going to be hitting in the 2030s, 40s, 50s, but my kids will. Everybody is always talking about droughts and sea level rise but when human civilization, with more crowding and greater resource depletion, is under that much stress, it translates into wars and huge displaced populations. The Syrian refugee crisis is just a first taste of what it's going to be like. I don’t want my kids growing up in that kind of world.”

Michael R. Bloomberg
U.N. Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change
Former Mayor of New York City
“Fighting climate change isn't just an obligation we owe to future generations. It's also an opportunity to improve public health – and drive economic growth – in the here and now. After all, the same steps that reduce carbon pollution also clean the air we breathe, which saves lives and reduces disease. Cities with clean air also gain an economic advantage, because where people want to live and work, businesses want to invest. By speeding the transition to cleaner energy, we can improve the lives of billions of people, while also reducing the risks we face from a changing climate.”

Mark Ruffalo
“We are living in revolutionary times. The good news is we have everything we need to leave fossil fuels in the ground. All we need is you to join the rest of the world to bring about a cleaner more stable and peaceful future.

Mary Robinson
UN Special Envoy for Climate Change
Former President of Ireland
“The changing climate is a threat to human rights. The fossil fuel based development model has not benefitted all people and those who have benefitted least are now suffering great harm in the face of climate change. But tackling the issue of climate change presents us with an inflection point in human history -  a climate justice revolution that separates development from fossil fuels, supports people in the most vulnerable situations to adapt, allows all people to take part and, most importantly, realise their full potential.”

Don Cheadle
Actor, UNEP Goodwill Ambassador
“I pray that our leaders stop pointing fingers and playing the blame game and seek a real solution for the good of the planet and all who inhabit it. It is the least represented among us who will be the most effected first. We have a moral responsibility to protect them.”

Act Now! is a major photography project to raise awareness on climate change created in partnership with UNEP and UNFCCC. In view of the 21st UN Climate Conference in Paris in December 2015, the photographers have photographed influential climate activists in serene and empathetic portraits and combined these portraits with statements of these activists.
