March with fellow nature lovers in the 'biodiversity bloc' at Cardiff's Global Day of Action.
Our planet is facing a climate and biodiversity crisis. Climate change and biodiversity decline are both defining issues of our time and require immediate action.
By working to protect, restore and effectively manage our landscapes and wild spaces, we can not only create benefits for wildlife, but people too.
In the lead up to COP26, we're teaming up with other organisations including RSPB Cymru, WWF Cymru, Woodland Trust/ Coed Cadw, Afonydd Cymru, INCC and Keep Wales Tidy to march for nature at the Cardiff Global Day of Action March on November 6th and we want you to join us!
Join us at the March - 6th November
The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales will form part of a 'Biodiversity Bloc' along with other organisations at the March.
11:30am: Meet at the King Edward VII Avenue, close to the Temple of Peace. Make sure you look out of staff members in Wildlife Trust t-shirts!
11:45pm: We will move to the front of City Hall to join with the rest of those gathering for the march. We'll then proceed to march through the city centre and to Cardiff Bay at 12.
2pm: Arrive at the Senedd. Finish the march, end with rally and speeches.
You can register for the March here.
If you are under 24, and interested in being part of the march with our Stand for Nature Project please contact Meg at email@example.com
What is the Global Day of Action?
The Global Day of Action is a mass mobilisation in the lead up to COP26 (that starts of the 31st October). Across the globe, on this day, people will come together to form a mass movement for climate justice. The Global Day of Action's aim is to bring together global movements and those who are championing and demanding action for nature.
What is Stand For Nature?
Stand for Nature Wales is a youth climate change project with a big ambition!
The six Wildlife Trusts in Wales have come together to tackle climate change with the help of the young people of Wales. For the next three years, we will work to empower and inspire young people to take action for nature and wildlife in their local area in a bid to tackle climate change.
If you are aged between 9-24, you can join our Stand For Nature Youth Forum and take action for nature where you live.
