WARWICK —Sustainable Warwick has chartered a bus for the People’s Climate March in New York City on Sunday, Sept. 21.

UN Secretary General Ban-Ki-moon has called a meeting of heads of state that week to discuss addressing climate change and organizers of the march want a show of public support for meaningful action.

More than 500 environmental, labor and social justice organizations are supporting the march.

The march has a permit from the city and will be family-friendly, with music, art, puppets and street theater.

“More and more alarming data about the impacts of climate change require an immediate response, and unfortunately, most world leaders are not taking adequate action,” said Mary Makofske of Sustainable Warwick.

Essential information
Details of the march are still being worked out, but Sustainable Warwick is reserving seats for the bus now. The cost is $25 round trip per person, payable to Sustainable Warwick and sent to SW at P.O. Box 1270, Warwick, NY 10990, along with your phone number and email for updates.

Updates will also be posted on the SW Facebook page and website (www.sustainablewarwick.org).

Some donated seats will be available for children traveling with their families. The bus is air-conditioned and has a rest room.

Tentative departure time is 10 a.m. from the Warwick Park and Ride on Route 17A, with return from NYC at 6 p.m.

The focus of Sustainable Warwick is primarily local,” said chair Geoff Howard, “but, of course, climate change knows no boundaries. We’ve already seen the havoc severe storms can bring to us right here at home. We want to encourage this historic effort to focus attention on the crisis of our time.”
