Health Desk-22 Sep 2019: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Saturday urged all to take concrete climate action and demand it of their respective leaders, reports AP.
"This is a race we can and must win," he said in a message marking the International Day of Peace.
The UN chief said peace is at the heart of all their work at the United Nations.
Today, Guterres said, peace faces a new danger: the climate emergency, which threatens their security, livelihoods and their lives.
"That is why it is the focus of this year’s International Day of Peace. And it’s why I am convening a Climate Action Summit. This is a global crisis," said the UN chief.
He said only by working together they can make their only home peaceful, prosperous and safe for them and future generations.
