Only when we move, we can move the world! Mayors join the Peoples Climate March

Two days before the Summit, more than 400,000 people marched the streets of  New York to call for urgent and transformative action on climate change, making it the biggest environmental march of all time. ICLEI and its delegation of Mayors were there, marching under the banner “People’s Climate, Mayors Commit,” to show a deep commitment to protecting people’s climate.  Mayors George Ferguson (Bristol, UK), Herbert Bautista (Quezon City, Philippines), Jürgen Nimptsch (Bonn, Germany), Frank Cownie (Des Moines, USA), Ronan Dantec (Nantes) joined the march together with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and more than 750 organizations.
