EcoLur began gathering materials on the coverage of the preparation, organizing and results of COP21 Summit for climate change in Paris. The Summit starts on November 30, the leaders of the countries having most influence on climate change also intend to take part in. It is expected that the world leaders will agree on restraining the pace of climate change at the expense of commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, measures for adaptation and mitigation of climate change consequences providing funds for the necessary activities.
The first message is that the government of France, because of the threats of terrorist acts and increasing the level of security, cancelled the march of activists in the streets of Paris dedicated to the problems of climate change.
“The French government has just announced that with security still a major concern in Paris, we’ll have to cancel our massive climate march there on November 29th.
This is heart-breaking for our Paris members, who have had enough heartbreak already, but hundreds of thousands will be marching all over the globe. And in Paris, people are donating their shoes to be lined up on the march route as a symbolic representation of their marching feet.
Let's all join them by sending thousands of photos of us with our shoes -- Avaaz will display our images in Paris to show Parisians they are not alone, and tell the world we all stand as one.
Use the tool on the right to upload an image with a message of hope to join the global virtual march now!”
