If you are planning on attending Sunday's People's Climate March and live in or near Gowanus, you may want to meet up so that our neighborhood, which has and will continue to experience the effects of global warming in the future, can be well represented.
To mark the UN Climate Summit, a massive march will take place in Manhattan on Sunday, September 21 Street at 11 AM. The march will begin at Columbus Circle and continuing on to 11th Avenue and 14th Street.
Gowanus, Brooklyn is experiencing climate change first hand! We've seen how frequent, heavier rainfall causes sewage to flow into the canal. We have seen how developers are pressuring city government for more zoning changes to build their large-scale, residential buildings on toxic land, in a flood evacuation zone.
Let's continue to speak up on behalf of the environment and our Gowanus community!
Let's march together on September 21st, under a Gowanus banner, and demand action on local and global climate crisis issues!
Participate in a historic demonstration and demand action on the climate crisis from local and world leaders!
The videos were taken in 2012 during a walking tour of the Gowanus Canal with climate change expert Klaus Jacob of Columbia University and with Paul Reale of The Climate Reality Project, which was founded by Al Gore, Nobel Laureate and former Vice President of the United States.
