A Global Day of Action to Move Beyond Fossil Fuels

September 24, 2011
New York City, New York

Time: Rides/marches begin at noon, rally at 2:00 pm.
Location: Dag Hammarskjold Plaza

Citywide community rides/marches converging at UN Rally. PSR New York City is a co-sponsor.

Moving Planet is a worldwide rally to move beyond fossil fuels. All over the world, people will take to the streets on bicycles, roller skates, skateboards, on foot and on any other sustainable form of transit they can dream up. We will demonstrate to our governments that a global consensus has formed: we are ready for a world after fossil fuels.

In New York City, we're organizing dozens of community marches and bike rides all over the five boroughs. You can find a march or ride in your neighborhood or create a new one!

These marches begin from noon on and will converge on a 2PM rally at the United Nations' Dag Hammarskjold Plaza on 47th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues in Manhattan.

The UN General Assembly will be in session at that time debating important resolutions just 2 months before the UN climate summit in Durban and in the critical run-up to Rio +20. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate the strength of our movement to both US and world leaders, and to demand real climate solutions!

Come by Merchant's Gate from 11-12 where The New York Society for Ethical Culture will be tabling their petition demanding more media coverage about climate change. Then join a walk, ride or pedicab going from there to the UN rally.

Action Alerts

  • It's time to put our health before polluter profits

    Climate change is endangering us now, harming public health and causing damage to our communities from extreme weather events. Tell your senators that rolling back methane pollution standards, a key step in our fight against climate change, is unacceptable!

  • Tell Congress: Protect our Health -- Oppose extreme anti-health bills

    Congress should ensure that federal agencies enforce laws that protect our water, air quality and public health--not curb the power of those agencies to carry out their mission. Tell your representative you oppose the REINS Act and the Midnight Rule Relief Act of 2017.
