The London People’s Climate March, part of an international mobilisation event, begins at 1pm at Temple Place and continues to Parliament with a rally and speakers at the end.

You can register to attend on the website or Facebook. Other events are taking place across the UK, with marches in Manchester and Edinburgh, plus other smaller events – find out more on the People’s Climate website by clicking on the world map. They have also provided an organising tool so you can organise your own event too.

Faith events

Operation Noah supporters will be attending the march as an act of worship. Other faith events are also taking place on the day. These include:

11am: an Anglican church service at 11am at St Mary le Strand.

12.15pm to 1pm: a multifaith gathering, shortly before the main march, at Victoria Embankment Gardens (opposite Temple tube station); this will be a space for prayer, silence, reflection and meditation. This day, 21 September, also marks International Peace Day and faith groups will be coming together to highlight the threat to peace associated with climate change. There will be a group prayer for peace and period of silence. More details are available on Facebook.

1pm: Church bells will be ringing out across London and in cities around the world in a ‘Climate Chorus’ organised by Our Voices.

Even if you can’t be in London on 21 September, there are many ways that you can be involved. Please see our news article for some suggestions.
