On September 24, New Yorkers will gather near the United Nations (at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, 47th Street between First and Second Avenues) for Moving Planet NYC! Moving Planet is an international day of action to draw attention to the climate crisis and push for solutions that move us beyond our reliance on fossil fuels.
Inspired by the democracy movements in Egypt and elsewhere this year, we’re reminded that people power is stronger than the fossil fuel industry’s influence. We can and must spur action on the climate crisis that has felt stalled since the UN Climate meetings in Copenhagen, 2009. The gathering of world leaders at the United Nations in late September offers the perfect opportunity for us to rally and call on our world leaders for a renewed focus on tackling the climate crisis.
Moving Planet NYC is a flagship event of a series of coordinated events happening around the world. Working with a broad global coalition fighting climate change, over 100 countries will host Moving Planet events on September 24.
Our event — organized by NYPIRG, 350.org, and our coalition partners — will feature prominent national and international speakers and a live music performance. It will be a truly momentous event in the climate movement that will be talked about for years to come. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of a historic global day of action!
