Next week will be a big one for climate change activity—and InsideClimate News will be there covering it.
Activists from more than 1,000 organizations will march through midtown Manhattan Sunday, Sept. 21 to call on world leaders to act on global warming. The event, known as the People's Climate March, is expected to be the largest gathering of disparate interests in the history of the climate movement, with estimates ranging as high as 100,000 people.
InsideClimate News will be there on the ground, providing breaking news updates, videos and pictures throughout the day. We'll travel with protesters as they stream into the city. We'll watch as the march route gets assembled and stay until the last buses leave. You can find the latest news from our reporters at InsideClimateNews.org, and on Twitter and Facebook.
InsideClimate also be launching a Tumblr page called Climate Week In Your Face profiling the activists converging on Manhattan demanding action.
Two days later, on Tuesday, InsideClimate News reporters will be at the United Nations as dozens of world leaders, including President Obama, gather to lay the groundwork for climate change treaty talks in Paris next year.
Bookending these two events are dozens of smaller conferences, round tables, and lectures happening as part of the sixth annual Climate Week NYC. Experts on climate science, policy, engineering and economics will discuss challenges and solutions for the climate crisis.
Throughout the week, the InsideClimate News homepage will feature opinion pieces from some of the world's foremost thought-leaders on climate issues.
