Canberra People’s Climate March – join us!
To change everything, we need everyone. So let’s make it clear everyone is at the People’s Climate March! Let’s meet in Canberra at Parliament to present a symbolic message and showcase the beauty in our diversity. We’ll then turn and walk together to Reconciliation Place for a family friendly Community Festival of Solutions with music, speeches and stalls, to celebrate how our communities are leading with action. Inspire and be inspired to create action and change!
Create your own message, come as you are, or join one of our colourful march sections to show that when it comes to addressing climate change, from here on in, we’re all in.
On the eve of the crucial climate negotiations in Paris people in cities all over the world will take to the streets asking our representatives to cooperate to make a deal that gives us a livable planet. We will march the short distance from outside Parliament House to Reconciliation Place down by the lake.
We will march in colored bands to represent our key reason for attending the rally.
Wear Green if you want to speak for the species and ecosystems that don’t have a voice.
Wear Blue if you want to stand for future generations.
Wear Yellow if you are inspired by climate change solutions.
Wear Orange if you want jobs that help rather than harm the environment.
Wear Red if you are feeling the impacts of climate change now. Bring umbrellas of the right color to keep off the sun and rain at bay.
The event lasts for about 2 and half hours and ends with a festival at Reconciliation Place down the lake.
Thousands of Australians will turn out for one of the World’s largest ever days of climate action. Our message is simple – Action, Not Words – as political leaders fail to take real action on climate change, we must empower ourselves and our communities to bring an end to fossil fuel expansion and to protect and grow our renewable energy sector.
Thousands will gather in Canberra for a Festival of Community Action. You’ll hear from community leaders about how you can get directly involved in vital campaigns: to save the Great Barrier Reef, Divest from Fossil Fuels, and Protect the Leard Forest from Coal. We’ll share skills, discuss our vision and prepare for further action. Bring your own picnic and we’ll bring the entertainment – definitely an event for all the family.
