International Day of Climate Action

On October 24th, citizens of the world will simultaneously gather and engage in community events across the globe to call on world leaders to secure a fair, ambitious, and binding global climate change deal in Copenhagen this December at the UN Climate Change Conference.

Organized by 350.org, an international campaign dedicated to building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis, Robert Swan will partake in a march across the Brooklyn bridge with other organizations and individuals from across the New York. The New York City event is one of more than 2,000 events in over 150 countries. Images of the events from around the world, including the march across the Brooklyn Bridge, will be featured on giant video screens in Times Square as part of a 350 countdown, and are accessible at 350.org. If you are in the area, come out support 2041 and 350.org, and stay tuned for more in-depth information about COP 15 in the coming weeks.
