The 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP 21/CMP 11, is underway in Le Bourget, a suburb of Paris, France, in which there is hope that a universal agreement will be reached on climate from nations around the world.
This summit has been ongoing since Nov. 30, and UNICEF (United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund) has something to say in regard to the matters at.
UNICEF is a United Nations organization that works to overcome children's obstacles created and perpetuated by poverty, discrimination, violence and disease. Katy Perry, one of the program's Goodwill Ambassadors, is speaking on behalf of the program in regard to the climate changes affecting the children of the world.
UNICEF released a promotional video on its YouTube channel Sunday, as seen below, in which Perry takes on the role of meteorologist, explaining "a special weather report on the devastating effects of climate change for the world's children."
"Today, we're seeing more extreme weather everywhere and as a California girl, I'm not the only one experiencing drought," the pop star shares. "Over the Pacific in the Philippines, we've seen more devastating tropical cyclone patterns emerging. While further west in Bangladesh, millions of children and families have lost their homes to flooding. Because it's always children who are first to suffer from its impact."
She continued to discuss how climate change is harming children in East Africa due to malaria.
"And the forecast is: conditions will worsen," she stated, adding, "So please join me in supporting UNICEF to change the forecast for children."
This promotional video is part of a campaign called #FightUnfair, which is meant to raise awareness about the unfair situations children are facing today, including the impact climate change has on them.
