As world leaders prepare for the Paris Climate Summit in November, people from all over the world will unite in a Global Climate March to send a strong message to politicians that this time we want action, not just words.
- ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE: We want urgent, legally binding action from world leaders at the UN COP21 in Paris in December: legally binding emissions reductions targets. So far, after 20 years of meetings, the only thing they have agreed is that we don’t want global warming to exceed 2degrees.
- JUSTICE: We want rich nations (who are responsible for the majority of global warming we have seen so far) to help out poorer nations in making the switch to becoming zero carbon.
- JOBS: We want out own government to invest in the renewable energy sector, to create jobs.
This is the world we want. Let’s make it happen.
As Bristol is European Green Capital this year, it’s the perfect chance for the people of Bristol to come together and show the world why we were chosen.
The march will start at 12 midday from Castle Park, finishing at College Green for a rally beginning at 13:00 with inspirational speakers (to be revealed nearer the time!), live music and loads more!
