Thousands Gear Up for the People's Climate March

People's Climate March - Sept. 21st (People's Climate March)

On Sunday, Sept. 21, a climate march through midtown Manhattan will kick off a week of high-profile climate events in the Big Apple. Promoted as an effort to bring unprecedented attention to climate change, the gathering comes just as international climate negotiations ramp up in a major push toward a new global accord. The People’s Climate March, being called the “largest climate march in history” by organizers, will potentially draw over a hundred thousand people to walk through Manhattan and show a level of demand for action not seen since the era of Civil Rights marches and anti-Vietnam protests.

The day after the march, a United Nations summit on the climate crisis will bring together world leaders, business executives and activist groups in an attempt to galvanize action for a global climate deal to follow the Kyoto Protocol. While not an official UN negotiating session, leaders have been invited to announce “significant and substantial initiatives to help move the world toward a path that will limit global warming.”

The third major undertaking in this three-pronged climate attack is Climate Week NYC, from Sept. 22 to Sept. 28, the sixth annual iteration of the event that features around 100 events, activities and high-profile meetings across the city. It is put together by The Climate Group, which includes business and government organizations focusing on the rapid scale-up of low carbon energy and technology.

More than 1,000 organizations have pledged support for the People’s Climate March, including the Sierra Club, the World Wildlife Fund, the National Wildlife Federation and the Earth Day Network. Students from more than 300 colleges and universities are expected to attend the march.

This is the hope of Bill McKibben, climate author and environmentalist turned activist, and co-founder of 350.org, who says the march is “an invitation to anyone who’d like to prove to themselves, and to their children, that they give a damn about the biggest crisis our civilization has ever faced.”

...Ahead of the march, a new film by 350.org, Disruption (see video below), was released on Sept. 7. The documentary looks at the consequences of ignoring climate change and aims to inspire people to join the march and the larger environmental movement. It includes interviews with well-known climate leaders such as Bill McKibben and Dr. James Hansen. You can watch it in its entirety below.
