On Friday, September 20th, 2019, local citizens will join the growing global movement to draw attention to climate change. Hundreds of thousands of people around the planet will answer the call of Greta Thunberg and other youth climate activists to join them in sending a message right before the upcoming UN summit. Their message will be that we are indeed in a climate emergency that requires bold action by citizens and governments alike.
Events throughout the day will include a street clean up, community garden tour, sign-making workshop, and compost talk and will culminate in a rally at Minnesota Square Park.
The Rally is Friday, September 20th, 6:00 – 7:30 pm. The rally includes speakers and a performance by Captain Gravitone & the String Theory Orchestra. It takes place at Minnesota Square Park in St. Peter.
