The biggest climate march ever in Belgium took place on Sunday December 2nd in the streets of Brussels, coinciding with the start of the UN Climate Conference in Katowice, Poland (COP24).

Where there’s a will , there’s a way!

This ´Claim the Climate´ march, challenged Belgian and global leaders to finally show some political courage to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees.

Climate Change is everyone’s challenge

For many it was their very first demonstration; a unique sense of solidarity and urgency united everyone. ”The feeling of being in this together moved all of us”, says one WeForest´s members also marching.

Solutions exist

Transitioning out of fossil fuels and restoring our global forests are the solutions. For that we need everyone: companies, consumers, policy-makers must act now.
