Today, Sunday world leaders are in New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary­ General Ban Ki-­moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.

With our global future on the line and the whole world watching, marchers will take a stand to bend the course of history. We’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.

The Lineup - The Story of a New Climate Movement
We want to make sure the People's Climate March tells the story of today's climate movement in all its parts - so we're trying something new, and arranging the contingents of the march in a way that helps us thread our many messages together.

If you're simply looking to march through the streets of New York with more people than have ever come together before to demand action on climate change, head to 86th street and Central Park West.
