People's Climate March

Location: 
New York City
Date: 
September 21, 2014
This is an invitation to change everything - before climate change does.

North Country 350 Alliance, a regional chapter of the environmental organization 350.org, is sending a 55-passenger bus filled with North Country folk to New York City on Sunday, September 21st to represent our region at the People's Climate March. The timing of the March matches up with a United Nations summit on the climate crisis. Along with tens of thousands of other activists - or, more accurately: mothers, fathers, students, farmers, business professionals, teachers, scientists, doctors, First Nations peoples, artists, and musicians - we'll demand a green economy, clean air and water, and a world safe from the perils of climate change! See you in the streets!

The bus cost will be $50 per person round trip. The bus will leave from Paul Smith's College in the morning on Sunday, 9/21, and will return that evening after the march. For more information and to reserve a seat on the bus e-mail Hannah Huber or David Smith.

To be put on the North Country 350 Alliance's email list, send a note to northcountry350alliance@gmail.com.
