The letter is short, under a page long, yet it delivers a powerful message, stressing the urgent need to phase out fossil fuels and double down on renewable energy sources. 

Another point made in the letter refers to ‘putting a price on carbon’ in order to channel funds towards meaningful climate action.

The letter addressing the COP28 President also calls for the stop and reversal of deforestation by 2030 with an emphasis on protecting the land of indigenous peoples.
