“The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who look at them without doing anything.” Albert Einstein

From 23 to 27 September the UN Climate Summit will be held in New York . On this occasion, citizens and NGO movements around the world are launching a week of action to urge EU and UN member states to declare the climate emergency. Our action in Brussels will be held the day before the summit on Sunday without a car. We will gather at Place Jean Rey near the European Parliament between 11h and 13h.

We invite you to converge on our rally by bike, on foot, by rollerblading, by scooter or by public transport (metro Schuman or Maelbeek, bus 21-27-59-64).
