I’m always inspired by young leaders like Rachid Ennassiri, who is helping more people in Morocco get involved in the fight against climate change. This Giving Tuesday, join the @ObamaFoundation in supporting the work of changemakers like Rachid:

When it comes to climate change, we can’t afford to go backward—or even stay where we are. If we are going to act on the scale that’s required to combat this climate crisis, we all need to step up and meet this moment together.

“It can be tough to change the status quo and at times it can be really lonely. Knowing you can call on a whole community of people, it means a lot.” —@NimaTisdall, one of the passionate #ObamaLeaders who joined President @BarackObama for a #ClimateCrisis discussion in Glasgow.

In 2011, my Administration made a pledge to prepare 100,000 new STEM teachers over the next 10 years. I couldn't be prouder to hear that @100Kin10 not only met that goal, but trained an additional 8,000 teachers who will make a difference for our kids.

The epidemic of gun violence in America has gotten worse during the pandemic. This article points to the ways in which the proliferation of guns magnifies the consequences of bias in policing, and makes reform of police practices that much harder.

Young people like @JackHarries and our @ObamaFoundation leaders are using their platforms to pressure the world on climate change. As we move forward with the Glasgow pact, we must listen and follow through on our commitments to protect our planet and secure a better future.

This Veterans Day, I want to share Tom Voutsos's story. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps, and has continued to live a life dedicated to public service. Through @LadderUpHousing, he’s helping hardworking folks buy their own home.

.@SpeakerPelosi and these members of Congress are making it clear that the United States is back, and will continue to lead the way on climate change. We would not have met our Paris goals without them, and now they’re working to do even more.

During his presidency, @BarackObama helped us meet and beat our Paris goals.   As President Biden and the world make them bolder at #COP26, it was a pleasure to meet with President Obama to discuss how we can preserve the planet for future generations.

Young people have more at stake in the fight against climate change than anyone else. I had a chance to talk with some young people who are helping lead the fight, and could not be more impressed by their courage, creativity, and persistence. They give me hope.

That’s why, if we’re going to act on the scale that’s required, climate change can’t be seen as another opportunity to score political points. We need everybody. And young people in particular have an opportunity to make a real difference.

But once again, progress is partial. Most nations have failed to be as ambitious as they need to be, and the escalation of ambition that we anticipated in Paris six years ago has not been uniformly realized.

The good news is that countries around the world recognize this is a decisive decade if we want to avoid a climate disaster, and are setting important goals for 2030. They’ve also promised to help countries move away from fossil fuels and deal with the effects of climate change.

I spoke at COP26 in Glasgow about what’s happened in the six years since the Paris Agreement, and how much further we still need to go to control climate change.
