Rise for Climate – act now! (or never)

Gathering of September 22, 2019

From 23 to 27 September in New York will be held the UN Climate Summit (www.un.org/en/climatechange/un-climate-summit-2019.shtml). On this occasion, citizen and NGO movements around the world are launching a week of action to urge EU and UN member states to declare the state of climate emergency and save the planet.
Our action in Brussels will be held the day before the summit during the car-free Sunday of 22 September and we will gather Place Jean Rey near the European Parliament between 11h and 13h
We call to converge to our gathering on foot, by public transport, by bike, by rollerblading, by scooter…
