YESTERDAY marked the official launch of the People's Climate Mobilisation web platform.

The platform, launched by 350.org and its allies, is part of the climate change organisation's global call to action and was also launched to coincide with the People's Climate March taking place in New York in September prefacing a United Nations Climate Summit.

"The NY march aims to bring hundreds of thousands of people to the streets of New York City to call on world leaders to commit to bold climate action as they arrive to attend a historic Climate Summit hosted by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon," a statement from 350.org yesterday detailed.

"The summit is one of the last chances for world leaders to come together and spark international progress before it becomes too late to avoid catastrophic climate impacts.

"World leaders will be greeted with the largest mobilisation on climate change in history in NY and globally."
