Following a call by the UN Climate Change Secretariat, hundreds of citizens, international and national leaders and representatives from all areas of society have spoken out to say "what the #ParisAgreement #Means4Me".

Under the Paris Agreement, clinched last year, 195 nations have agreed to combat climate change and to unleash actions and investment towards a low carbon, resilient and sustainable future. The historic agreement is to be signed at UN Headquarters in New York on 22 April.

We’ve been asking individual people, institutions, firms, investors and governments at all levels (including cities and regions) to actively support the signing and speedy ratification and implementation of the Paris Climate Change Agreement by posting video messages, web cards, animations or simply meaningful texts with pictures on social media – something they can continue to do up to 22 April.

Here are just a couple of great examples of what we've seen up to now.
