“WE THE ELDERS” will be marching in the second themed area: We Can Build The Future, along with families, students, labor & health care workers.
It is happening.
And, you can be a part of this historic moment.
Join us in New York City.
Or, join us via the Global Mobilization.
Either way the March is the Message.
It is a message to the world leaders who will be gathering at the UN Climate Summit on September 23rd, at the invitation of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
The invitation to this Summit states that: “Climate change is not a far-off problem. It is happening now and is having very real consequences on people’s lives. Climate change is disrupting national economies, costing us dearly today and even more tomorrow. But there is a growing recognition that affordable, scalable solutions are available now that will enable us all to leapfrog to cleaner, more resilient economies.”
This is the critical time
Now is the time for our world leaders to come together, and put in place strong policies and actions that will turn the tide on our energy usage, and the way that we treat our world.
Our planet is not simply a warehouse to provide us with needed resources – but the living organism that sustains all life in a carefully balanced ecosystem.
This is also a message with hope.
There are affordable and feasible solutions to the climate crises.
What we need is the will and the leadership. Thankfully the UN Climate Summit is a call to action – not only to world leaders but also to the world’s people.
The strength of our March -- the People’s Climate March -- will be a call to world leaders to pay attention to the message of the people. We, the people, are actively organizing, expecting and demanding that our leaders will responsibly serve us.
Every major transformation has had strong leadership supported by a vocal public. Now, is the moment to get behind our leaders and empower them to do their job.
Our power is hundreds of thousands of people speaking with one voice saying: “Now is the moment for real action. By marching together we empower our leaders so that the people and the leaders can bring forth the thriving, resilient communities that will be the foundation of our future.”
