The People’s Climate March
Last weekend saw over 675,000 people across the world come together in the largest mobilisation on climate change in history.
Organisers called the day of protests in order to put pressure on world leaders gathering in New York for a UN summit on climate change. Dubbed the People’s Climate March, over 150 countries came together with the collective demand to put climate change back on the agenda.
This was an inspiring day for the climate movement, and now the crucial challenge is to maintain this momentum leading up to the Paris UN Climate Conference in a years time. This will be the most crucial meeting of world leaders on climate change since Copenhagen in 2009.
