On Sunday, September 21st, just days before a landmark climate summit at the UN, Avaaz members around the world are taking part in a People's Climate March. World leaders don’t believe enough of us care about climate change, that’s why they’re still not yet rising to the challenge of saving our planet. But on September 21, we have an unprecedented chance to prove them wrong, with the largest climate mobilisation in history.

 

On September 21st, hundreds of thousands of people are expected to march on the streets of New York City, demanding action from government leaders to seriously address climate change. Under the unifying message “To change everything we need everyone”, the People’s Climate March will kick off a critical 15-month period of global efforts pushing governments to craft a global agreement that can combat climate change. The People’s Climate March – along with the parallel marches, actions and events taking place in cities all around the world on the same day – is an opportunity for people from all walks of life to demand that the future of this planet be safe from the ravages of climate change and include an economy that works for people and the planet with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities. It takes place only a few days ahead of Ban Ki-moon’s first Climate Leaders Summit, where government leaders from around the world are expected to re-engage in the fight against dangerous climate impacts and signal their support for the strong global climate agreement that is due at UN talks in Paris in 2015.
