Climate change is one of the greatest threat to world peace and security currently facing humanity. In November the UK will be hosting COP26 in Glasgow where the nations of the world will meet to review progress towards reducing their carbon emissions.
A group of Spanish environmental activists will be taking part in the The East Column March to Glasgow and will arrive in Coventry on Saturday 9 October.
They are hoping for support to obtain publicity and engage the public in climate change and COP26.
The video below summarises their plans and their hopes.
What ideas do you have for possible events in Coventry City Centre from about 12:00 to 16:00?
Can you help with publicity on local radio and in the newspapers?
Would you like to walk a little way with them? Or even a long way?
Could we organise a rally to greet them?
Can you help to organise an event?
Are you able to contact local organisations and tell them about the March?
If you can help please write to Claire Silvester at MarchToGlasgow@covcan.uk
