The Peoples’ Climate Change March


Forty thousand campaigners were marching in London today to demand urgent action on climate change.

Celebrities including actress Emma Thompson and musician Peter Gabriel are joining campaigners and British flood victims at the march and rally.

It is one of 2,000 events taking place in 150 countries around the world ahead of a United Nations climate summit next week.

Some 100,000 people are expected to get involved in New York City – the summit’s location – to demand leaders take action to tackle rising temperatures.

The UN summit has been convened by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in a bid to drive action and momentum towards talks in Paris in 2015.


Next week is a big one for the environment.
