On the eve of the UN’s COP21 climate talks in Paris in December 2015, more than 700,000 people in Australia and worldwide took part in People’s Climate Marches. The marches sent a powerful message for climate justice to world leaders. From Australia and Samoa to Bangladesh and Kenya, people from 175 countries were united in demanding that our world leaders act urgently to reign in the negative impacts of climate change and protect people and the planet from worsening climate impacts. Many of the communities Caritas Australia works with will be most adversely affected by climate change. In Australia in particular, the People's Climate Marches were the beginning of a new chapter in climate justice with a whole new level of collaboration between a broad range of civil society groups.
