On the 20-21st September, hundreds of thousands of people will take to the streets in support of a world safe from the ravages of climate change with good jobs, clean air, clean water, and healthy communities, powered by renewable energy.
The largest People’s Climate March is taking place in New York City with parallel rallies taking place in cities like Delhi, Jakarta, London, Rio de Janeiro, Johannesburg, Berlin and Paris. People are joining together because they know that to change everything, we need everyone.
For Our Grandchildren will be in New York. We will march with the Grandparents Climate Action of Norway under the banner of climate justice for grandchildren everywhere.
We will be presenting a joint Statement on the need for action to the UNFCCC, the secretariat that administers the Kyoto Convention. We consider that it is high time that the issue of climate change is back at the top of the political agenda.
We will be keeping our supporters up to date with daily blogs starting Saturday, September 20, and continuing until September 23, the day after the conclusion of the September UN Climate Summit.
