Global Day of Climate Action – 11 am Sunday 21 September at the State Library

On Sunday 21st September, thousands of people are going to flood the streets of Melbourne to call for action on climate change. It is up to us, as the first country to launch the historic event, to put on a spectacular show of support. Melbourne is one of seven focus cities of the biggest climate mobilisation in history — we’ll be joining people marching in 100 countries across the world! And it’s just two days before world leaders hold an urgent UN climate summit. Our numbers on the streets could influence their ambitions. It is going to be massive, will you join in?

The march starts at 11.00am at The State Library and finishes at Treasury Gardens. If you would like to join other BCCAG supporters, we will be on the Sandringham train leaving North Brighton station at 10.20 am – in the front carriage. . . . READ MORE.
