Wow! 175 Parties signed the #ParisAgreement on Climate Change last Friday. But we -- and our leaders -- are not off the hook. We must take climate action individually and keep pressuring our leaders and institutions to think sustainably.

Senior United Nations officials including Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson joined volunteer UN gardeners to plant a flowering tree in the UN Food Gardens in celebration of last Friday's Earth Day and the signing of the #ParisAgreement.
A commemorative plaque nearby explains that the tree stands as a symbol of the commitment of the United Nations to the Global Goals for Sustainable Development, agreed by countries last year.
Feeling inspired to plant a tree yourself? Then give it a go in your personal garden, school or community!

On 25 April 2015, more than one year ago, everything changed for 72-year-old Bishnu Maya Dangal when a massive 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit Nepal. Her home was completely destroyed, leaving behind nothing but a pile of rubble.

Without anything to call their own and in search of food and shelter, Bishnu Maya and her husband trekked up the hill and found a piece of empty land next to the district health post. That is where the elderly couple found the support they needed by way of the women's organization SAATHI and its multi-purpose women’s centre, supported by UN Women.

When Prativa Shrestha, the district coordinator centre, learned that the couple didn’t have senior citizens cards, and weren’t getting the money the Government provides to seniors, she leaped into action. She contacted the local administration and applied for the cards on the couple’s behalf. Within days the cards were ready.

Since then the couple has been getting Rs 500 (USD 5) each, every month. enough to buy basic supplies like sugar, salt, oil and medicine.
