Luxembourg is holding its own climate change rally to coincide with similar demonstrations around the world.
The approaching Paris summit on climate change is being described as the most important climate meeting of the decade. Globally, thousands of people will be rallying in an attempt to hold leaders accountable to agree a safe course for the future of the planet. The organisers of the rallies say, “we need to encourage bold actions to drastically reduce greenhouse gases to ensure a safer world for our children.”
In Luxembourg the rally is being organized by Votum Klima. It will start at 6 p.m. at the place Guillaume--the venue has been changed recently from place Clairefontaine because of the expected number of participants.
The march will wind its way through the city to the Rotondes, where a programme of concerts, lectures, speeches and exhibitions is being organized. This will feature local artists such as singers Serge Tonnar and Sascha Ley and ska band Toxkäpp.
