The Global Climate March

Event Reports

Time for the Climate in Sheffield was fantastic! We had lots of fun, creative activities including a Climate Cake Off competition, bike ride into the city centre, craft activities, face painting, music and debate. At 2pm we had a mass sing of the Song for the Climate followed by a 1.5 minute silent vigil led by some of the city's faith leaders.


What will happen at the event?

Let's tell our leaders it's time to leave the age of fossil fuels behind!

Come with your family and friends and be part of our growing climate movement - all welcome!

We'd like everyone to join a mass sing and silent vigil at 2pm in Tudor Square - see: http://bit.ly/1hObKSI to learn the song and keep checking here, on www.sheffieldclimatealliance.net and https://www.facebook.com/events/1490417151253648/ for more details.

Floods, typhoons and droughts are already impacting many millions of people around the world - this humanitarian crisis most affects those who have done least to create the problem.
Real solutions exist: public renewable energy, green infrastructure and millions of new, unionised clean jobs – we need this to happen faster, at scale, and with people at its centre, so we can leave the age of fossil fuels behind. 

 Hope is with the people who are already way ahead of governments and corporate interests. We want our leaders to know that we want real action from the Paris climate talks, and we can and we will build the future from here – a more just, more equitable and better world for us all.

Join us to say No to dirty energy... Yes to renewables... Climate jobs now... Justice for people!

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!
