March for Water and Climate – 31/10/2021

Humanity is on the verge of cataclysmic climate fallout. We want European and world leaders to respect the Paris Agreement before the earth becomes unlivable!
We organized a massive march on October 31 to get our elected officials and governments of the world present at COP26 to take action.
This event was supported by many artists. We also organized a climate village with suggested solutions for the different climate issues.

We encourage and support Belgian cities and municipalities to declare a climate emergency and to adopt concrete measures to respond to this emergency without delay.

To date, 17 of the 19 Brussels municipalities have declared a climate emergency.

We have convinced :
Brussels City (23/09/19)
Uccle (26/09/19)
