People’s Climate March to Take Place in Oklahoma

People's Climate MarchUnited Nations leaders are preparing to have an emergency climate summit on Sept. 23rd in New York City. The summit was called by UN Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon. The goal of the summit is to reach a global climate deal and develop emission reduction commitments.

Before the summit people are gearing up to march to bring awareness to climate change. The People’s Climate March will take place on Sept. 21st with the main march in New York City. The march is expected to be the largest demonstration for climate action in history.

“Everything our children depend on for survival — clean air, adequate water, food security, peace and stability, and protection from extreme weather events — is threatened by rapidly approaching tipping points that, if reached, will spin the life-support systems of this planet irrevocably out of control,” said Linda Hutchins-Knowles, in an article about why she is marching.


Other marches are planned all over the world, including Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Miami.

The Oklahoma City march begins at 2:00 p.m. on the east lawn of municipal building at 201 N. Hudson, at Park Avenue. The march will be one mile. Concerned citizens will speak about climate change and its impacts on the planet.

The Tulsa march begins at 3:00 p.m. It will start at the River Parks East Trail at the 41st Street Plaza. The event will include speakers, information booths, and kite making.

The Miami march begins at 4:00 p.m. at Northeastern A&M College at 200 I St. NE. The march will be apart of the 16th annual National Environment Conference at Tar Creek.
