The People’s Climate March (PCM) is an upcoming large-scale activist event to advocate global action against climate change, scheduled to take place on Sunday, September 21, 2014 in New York City.

Described as “an invitation to change everything,” the march was called in May 2014 by 350.org, the environmental organization founded by writer/activist Bill McKibben, and has so far been endorsed by “over 325 organizations, including many international and national unions, churches, schools and community and environmental justice organizations.”

It was conceived as a response to (but not a protest against) the scheduled U.N. Climate Summit of world leaders to take place in New York City two days later, on September 23.

Although based in New York, the event is intended to be global in scope and implication, and there will be “companion demonstrations” worldwide. Organizers intend the march to be “the largest single event on climate that has been organized to date… one so large and diverse that it cannot be ignored.”

The entire PCM project will consist of “numerous events, actions, symposia, presentations, and more organized over the course of the days leading up to the Summit, and in the days following,” of which the march is intended to be “the anchor event.”
