"“Responses to global climate change should reflect our interdependence and common responsibility for the future of our planet. Individual nations must measure their own self-interest against the greater common good and contribute equitably to global solutions.” —U.S. Bishops"



“I ask you, in the name of God, to defend Mother Earth … Cowardice in defending it is a grave sin“, said Pope Francis recently in Bolivia.

On Nov. 29, this is what hundreds of thousands of men, women and children will do in the Global Climate March.”


People will take action EVERYWHERE, in over 3000 cities worldwide. The epicenter will be a mega march in Paris, which will be complemented by marches in all major cities across the globe.
