Climate Heroes at the Climate March in New York

Today was a huge movement, worldwide, with unprecedented mobilization: Climate Marches happened all over the world. As described by all major newspapers and online media, hundreds of thousands of people in over 150 countries took the streets today to march for action on climate change.

This event was dubbed the People’s Climate March, and according the The Guardian, it has been flagged as “the biggest global call-to-action on climate change in history”.

Specifically, with this day of call-to-action, people are demanding world leaders take action on climate change as they prepare for a United Nations summit in New York on Monday, September 23rd, 2014.

Climate Heroes project founder Max Riché and project partner Sunmin Kim from Student Reporter were in New York today to march with groups coming from all over the world in Manhattan: an incredible number of people marched on Central Park West, in a procession that stretched all the way to midtown Manhattan.

Below are a few images he was able to capture today.
