Global climate march takes to Duncan City Square Sunday

Grant Waldman, executive director of the West Coast Men’s Support Society, is spearheading a global climate march

Grant Waldman, executive director of the West Coast Men’s Support Society, is spearheading a global climate march in downtown Duncan on Sunday, Nov. 29.

From 4-4:30 p.m. at Duncan City Square Waldman hopes to gather with like-minded people to create a circle “then send out a powerful POW out to the planet! We will all send our intentions out for renewal and sustainable strategies,” he said in a press release.

He is committed to encouraging change.

“Because I love our planet — our home and want to protect her from the myopic profit seeking corporate greed that has a stranglehold on her,” Waldman said.

The march is scheduled one day before world leaders meet in Paris for the United Nations Climate Summit to start negotiating the next global climate deal.

Marches are scheduled in locations around the world to emphasize to government leaders that clean energy is vital.

“Together we can push the world towards a climate deal that gets us off dirty energy and unleashes clean energy for all,” said Waldman.
