The Global Climate March

Event Reports

The first person turned up twenty minutes before the start which is always a good sign. Some brave souls sat down on ground sheets on the wet, muddy ground and launched into their picnic. After about half an hour the crowd had grown appreciably and people kept on turning up! Then Rowena turned up with her choir and her ukele and led us all in a series of fun songs, which really brought the crowd together. It was a fun moment in which everybody realised that a great number of people in our city have got the climate message and want to see positive action, pretty much immediately. Don't tarry! Be Snappy! Do, do do do it now! A lot of people met each other for the first time. People came from as far afield as Norwich and Peterborough to take part. We took a group photo which is included above and a whole series of other images are on the flickr account here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/albums/72157661689488531/page1 I think I speak for everyone who came, that they had a good time, and that people were really pleased that we were able to show how much support there is for taking action about climate change in Cambridge. We invited everyone to sign the Cambridge Climate Message as well: www.cambridgeclimatemessage.org.uk. All this shows that Cambridge is serious about supporting the delegates at the Paris summit and asking them to make a really serious effort to find an ambitious plan. Good luck! Cambridge is right behind you.


What will happen at the event?

This event will be a simple gathering of everyone in Cambridge who is concerned about climate change.  A show of support for the planet and the community. Their families, friends and loved ones. There are so many people in Cambridge who are passionate about changing the way that humans treat the planet! If you can't make it to London, then simply come along and be part of the event in Cambridge. The idea is to bring a picnic and a rug or a chair and see if we can't cover the whole of Parker's piece for an excellent photograph that will send a clear message!  Dress up warm and colourful and come and show the whole community and the planet that Cambridge really wants to change. The event will last no more than two hours and we will take the photo around 1.50pm.
