International Day of Action for Climate ChangeFrom Albania to Uruguay and 84 countries in between, people came together to on December 8, to take part in the International Day of Action for Climate Change. Events ranged from big rallies in capital cities, to student campus actions, to local community events, festivals and public meetings.

Despite coming from many different cultures, languages and backgrounds, the message was clear from those who part in the International Day of Action. They want; world leaders and decisions makers to take urgent action to reduce emissions, for rich countries to support developing countries and communities cope with problems caused by climate change; and plan for a sustainable future for humans, animals and environment alike.

Avaaz march through UN Climate Change Conference Dec 8Bali, (the location for the United Nations Climate Change Conference) also saw people taking action on Climate Change. There was a rally and festival by Climate Change campaigners in the capital Denpasar, and inside the conference itself, online campaigning group Avaaz, marched with the 545,000 names of people who participated in a virtual march for climate change.

Oxfam supporters have also taken part in rallies and activities across the world. We will update photos on our Flickr profile as soon as they come in.
