Come to Paris!

People from all over the world will be travelling to Paris to take part in massive demonstrations - would you be able come along and call for action on climate change?

2015 is an important year for climate action, in December, world leaders will meet in Paris to conclude negotiations for a new global deal to tackle climate change and address its impacts.  We need to show the strength and diversity of public support for making this deal as ambitious and equitable as possible.  

To successfully show this, we need to get people onto the streets of Edinburgh for Scotland's Climate March, but also on the streets of Paris.  A group of activists and concerned individuals will be travelling from Edinbugh to Paris for a huge demonstration planned on the 12th of December - could you be one of them?

  • Join with others from across the globe to call for change

  • Join a massive march and actions across Paris
  • Hear from people directly affected by climate change
