The Global Climate March
Highlights: A lovely start in Christ Church with a super welcome that set the day off with smiles, despite the cold wind. The stop at the Civic Centre when we were all together and not in a long line on the pavements. The minute of silence for Paris. Then at the end a chance to sit and listen to brilliant speakers. All the way people were talking to each other, happy to be together, relieved to be with people who share concern for the planet and for people. It felt liberating to be with people who cared enough and dared enough to walk with us.
What will happen at the event?
We will walk through Reading town centre with a stop on Oxford Rd and outside the Civic Centre, and end the rally at the Town Hall with speakers and climate buzz.
You will march and attract media. The people's voices will be heard hours before the summit in Paris. We need local and global leaders to know that we insist they should take ambitious action on CLIMATE CHANGE to avert a global crisis.
If you don't want to walk the whole route please feel free to join in at any point on the day - further details of times to come.
Anyone with physical impairments is really welcome to join us at the Town Hall. Let us know in advance and we will make sure there is space for you.
Check back regularly for more updates - let's make this huge!
This event is part of the Global Climate March. On November 30th, world leaders meet in Paris to start negotiating the next global climate deal. That’s why, the day before, people around the world will take to the streets and push leaders at every level of government to commit to 100% clean energy. Together, we can push the world towards a climate deal that gets us off dirty energy and unleashes clean energy for all. Let's make history -- RSVP on the right for this Global Climate March event!
