People's Climate Mobilization

A healthy planet is an essential component of a healthy society, and many are now pointing to climate change as the greatest threat to human life and wellbeing. This Sunday, September 21, thousands of citizens from around the world will gather in New York City to bring attention to the global climate crisis, with thousands more joining them in satellite events across the globe.

1500 events have been registered for September 21 in over 130 countries. Will you join us in demanding upstream action to address climate change? The time to act is now.

In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary­ General Ban Ki-­moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.

With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history. We’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.
