The People's Climate March

In September, heads of state are going to New York City for a historic summit on climate change. With our future on the line, we will take a weekend and use it to bend the course of history.

In New York City there will be an unprecedented climate mobilisation – in size, beauty, and impact. This moment will not be just about New York or the United States. Heads of state from around the world will be there, as will the attention of global media.

Our demand is for Action, Not Words: take the action necessary to create a world with an economy that works for people and the planet – now. In short, we want a world safe from the ravages of climate change.

There will be events happening around Australia on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 September. Check here for details.

In Melbourne, Friends of the Earth supporters are welcome to join us on Sun Sept 21. We will meet at Bowen Lane in RMIT at 10:40am. The march starts at 11am at the State Library in Swanston street.

We will need local action

In Victoria this means convincing the main Parties to rule out any further coal or gas development.
