In September, world leaders are attending a UN summit in New York City on the climate change crisis. Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution
A massive People’s Climate March in New York City will demonstrate how people feel, and events are happening all over the world to get across one big global message: We actually have the tools and the plan we need to make sure we don't cross into a world where tipping points destroy us.
Sheffield Climate Alliance are responding - with over 30 groups coming together under one big umbrella, we have planned four routes with different colour themes to converge at the Town Hall and say ‘It’s Time to Act’:
Blue: along the Upper Don starting from Hillsborough Corner (overlooking weir), contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Black and Green: along the Porter Brook starting from Endcliffe Park (Bingham Park end), contact email@example.com
Red: along the Sheaf starting from Millhouses Park (near cafe), contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Yellow: along the Lower Don starting from Attercliffe Cemetery entrance, contact email@example.com
The UK is still in the Top 20 list of countries for highest emissions released in the world. If you ever wondered what you could do to make a difference, this is your chance!
