5. People's Climate March
Today, September 23rd, heads of state are gathering in New York City for the UN summit on climate change
In the past days, people from all over the world mobilised to demand "action, not words". The main rally, in New York City, gathered 400,000 people. In total, there were more than 2800 events and actions in 166 countries: the biggest global climate action ever.
"We are demanding the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities"
Is this the long-awaited beginning of real change? We are ready for it!
