People of Auckland are gathering for a day of action to show our concern about the state of the planet and send a message to our leaders that we want action on climate change
It's all happening on Saturday 24th September: the day of the AllBlacks/ France game!
Dress up as your favourite fossil fuel alternative. Let's create a visual spectacle of human wind turbines, electric train drivers etc. Or keep it simple and decorate yourself with the unifying symbol for the worldwide Moving Planet day: arrows to symbolise moving away from fossil fuels.
Those that are biking are meeting on at 11am at Wynyard Quarter playground for a moving planet bikeride. All those with two (or one) wheels are welcome to join.
Non-bikers will join the bikers at 13.00 at QEII Square on two feet, skateboards, tricycles, roller skates or roller blades. We will march together up Queen Street to demonstrate together how much we need action on climate change- it a message to our leaders and peers that this IS important!
We'll finish at Albert Park, where we will have a picnic, with vegetarian food available to purchase. There'll be music and kids entertainment too.
Come join us and show your support for New Zealand to move beyond fossil fuels - make your voice heard!
