Climate Day of Action in Vancouver

On Saturday, October 24 I participated in the International Day of Climate Action organized by 350.org and Bridge to a cool planet. The goal of this day was to to put pressure on governments to push for an “ambitious, fair, and binding” climate deal at the Copenhagen Climate Summit in December.


In Vancouver, 5000 people joined the walk from the Cambie bridge to Science World where a festival was scheduled. The weather was good and there was a pleasant atmosphere. I did not take my camera. So the pictures below have been found on the internet:

Many cyclists and families attended the parade. Some people wore well-made costumes.

A giant banner saying: “Canadians care – Climate action now” was hung off the side of the bridge.
