A Global Climate March will begin worldwide on Sunday 29 November preceding the Paris climate summit (COP21) which begins on Monday 30 November and continues until Friday 11 December. These events have been staged annually since 1995’s meeting in Berlin. The COP21 bit is because COP stands for conference of parties and is an annual meeting of the 195 countries that make up the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. This being the 21st meeting, it’s COP21. COP20 last year in Lima, Peru came to an inconclusive end. A great deal of hope is being invested in Paris COP21 being a decisive summit.
Most national leaders, at the very least key political figures, will be attending. In order to show politicians people are serious around the world a Global Climate March will begin one day before the summit, marching symbolically in the direction of Paris. There will be a permanent peaceful demonstration in Paris. Here in France la marche pour le climat will meet in a number of places, others are still being organised. It is possible to find out where these events are from a number of sources, I am simply putting up the link to Avaaz's one using the search for a local event, but take it from there and in fact you can use it to find any known one worldwide.
By the way, the number of people attending in each case means Avaaz supporters only, whereas in fact most expect people to turn out in thousands.
I would like to say one thing. I am putting this up to inform people who may be interested. It is not meant as a provocation aimed at sceptics and climate change deniers, so there is no need to turn this into an angry debate. If anybody feels they wish to have that debate then feel free to put up your own discussion on that topic.
