Biggest Climate March Ever in Brussels Marks the Start of the UN Climate Summit

The biggest climate march ever in Belgium took place Sunday. 65,000 protesters took to the streets of Brussels to mark the start of the UN climate summit in Poland. The crowd was filled with activists and families with children.

The march, called “Claim The Climate,” ended with speeches and performances at the Parc Cinquantenaire overlooking the EU.

The protest was timed for the launch of the COP24, the UN climate summit where officials from 200 nations will aim to boost efforts to avert runaway climate change.
