Before corporate and governmental leaders arrive in New York City this September 21 for the UN Climate Summit, the Green Party of the United States together with the System Change Not Climate Change and the Global Climate Convergence will be laying the groundwork for an alternative summit, what we’re calling New York City Climate Convergence.
Our objective is to build and strengthen an environmental movement that addresses the root causes of the climate crises; a social-economic system that values profits above people, planet and peace. As the corporate captured UN proposes false solutions like carbon trading and sets meager greenhouse reduction targets, we will show the world what tackling global warming from the bottom up looks like.
Occurring in the runup to the People’s Climate March – slated to be the largest climate march in U.S. history – the Climate Convergence from September 19th to the 21st will draw thousands across North America and the world. Keep up with the Climate Convergence on Facebook,Twitter, and at ConvergeForClimate.org. Meanwhile, save the date: http://convergeforclimate.org/about
Climate activists from around the world are participating. Over one hundred workshops are taking place in churches, gardens, community centers and on two university campuses in Lower Manhattan – aimed at finding real alternatives and developing action plans that transform the system, rather than accept it.
