Largest Climate Mobilisation in History
We did it! This weekend’s Global Climate March broke records as the largest climate mobilisation in history! This is the movement our world has been waiting for.
From São Paulo, to Sana’a, to Sydney, over 785,000 of us marched at 2,300 events in 175 countries united in one voice calling for a 100% clean energy future to save everything we love.
Scroll down to see the amazing events that took place all over the planet and the front pages of newspapers today! Then leave a message for the whole Avaaz community.

"Phew, what a tremendous day! Quite incredible. A message this strong is hard to dismiss, but when it unites with the global outcry for climate action we're seeing all around the world right now? It can't be ignored. The climate negotiations are almost here. I don't know about you, but for once I'm actually feeling quite hopeful."

"I marched in Amsterdam alongside a Polar Bear on behalf of Olivia from Paris who couldn't march. She attended the Avaaz Shoes symbolic march instead, she loved it. We sent pictures to each other from both events at the same time. Amazing way to connect with inspiring people with one dream in common! A good climate deal for the COP21!"
