on climate change

Melting glacial ice is one of the clearest indicators of climate change. Nowhere is this more apparent than where you’d least expect to find ice – at the equator, where 25 mountains still have a glacier. Within a quarter of a century these glaciers will be gone due to climate change – in some cases, far sooner. Put simply, 25 mountains zero latitude, 25 years zero ice – 25zero.

The Plan

Teams will climb a mountain in each of the countries the 25zero mountains are situated in during the course of COP21, the United Nations' climate change conference (Nov 30 - Dec 11 2015, Paris).

Live video, images and messages about the rapidly disappearing glaciers will be transmitted to decision makers at COP21 and global media outlets by the 25zero expedition teams. These images and stories will show the severity of climate change and the need for urgent action to combat it.


  1. To get decision makers to reach a meaningful climate change agreement in Paris
  2. To raise funds for WWF-Australia climate change projects via an App that allows you to virtually climb the mountains the 25zero teams will climb for real
  3. To better inform everyone as to what is going on with climate change and COP21
  4. To get more people involved in the issue and taking action by signing the WWF-Australia pledge and raising funds for WWF-Australia climate change projects
