Next week, world leaders will meet in New York City for a climate summit led by UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon. He’ll be urging governments to drastically lower the pollution that causes global warming, but one man can’t do it alone. That’s where we (and YOU!) come in…
The People’s Climate March will be held in various cities and communities across the world September 21-23, right before the summit begins. It is said to be the largest climate march in history with thousands of people attending their respective gatherings globally.
The march is a unifying effort by organizations, businesses, and independent groups to spread the word for a cleaner environment and brighter future.
We’ll be marching in NYC, but if you’re in the Bay Area, head to the Global Climate Convergence at Lake Merritt Amphitheatre on September 21 from 2pm – 5pm to rally with other like-minded environmentally forward thinking folks. Bring signs, friends, cameras, everything to help spread the word that we need change.
How to help:
If you can’t attend an event in person, donations always help. You can donate to the Bay Area 350.org chapter to support local climate activism.
