    Sunday, September 21 in New York City. Join us.

    In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary­ General Ban Ki-­moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.

    With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history. We’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.

    Support the coalition that’s fighting climate change.
    Join us on September 21 for the People’s Climate March in New York City. Days ahead of the UN summit on the climate crisis and the start of Climate Week NYC, the march is a chance to speak out about the importance of addressing climate change. Details, organizer resources, and more are available at the People's Climate March website.

    March with USGBC New Jersey, Urban Green (USGBC NYC), and more: 
    That morning, Urban Green Council will be leading a feeder march to give our friends in the green building community a chance to hang together as we walk in support of addressing climate change. USGBC NJ members can join participants from Urban Green, NY Passive House, GreenHomeNYC, Regional Plan Association, Solar One, as well as AIANY.

    Register HERE for updates on the Urban Green feeder march.

    Where to meet:
    In front of Starbucks at 338 Columbus Ave (at the corner of Columbus Ave and West 76th Street)
    After everyone arrives, we’ll walk east on 77th St towards the lineup at Central Park West, based on the information recently released by march organizers for the “We Have Solutions” contingent.
