Cork March for Climate Action
On November 30th World leaders meet in Paris to finalise a new global deal on climate change. People all over the world are taking to the streets to show that the time for procrastination is over and it is now time to act.
Cork is joining in this global day of Climate Action and the rally in Cork will convene at the Grand Parade at 2.00 p.m on Sunday 29th November 2015.
The March will set off promptly at 2.30pm with the route taking in Oliver Plunkett Street, Parnell Place, Merchants Quay, Patrick Street and ending back at the Grand Parade.
The Cork City Samba Band and other entertainment will join the March to create an atmosphere of positive energy to build momentum in moving in the right direction to tackle climate change.
Organisers and supporters of the March in Cork include Cork Environmental Forum, Trocaire, Social Health & Education Project, People’s Climate Ireland, UCC Green Campus, Transition Town Kinsale and UCC Environmental Society.
We encourage everyone to join in as this issue impacts all our lives and is contributing to injustice and hunger around the world. Let our governments know we want real commitments and real actions to stop climate chaos and injustice. We invite family and friends of all ages and from all parts of Munster to come along.
Groups can bring banners and placards with appropriate messages and we ask people to wear green, if possible, the colour of clean energy!
Be a part of the movement against climate change and help to make a difference by showing our leaders and those of other countries that people in Ireland care about climate change and the future of our shared planet.
