United Nations secretary-general Ban Ki-moon, former US vice president Al Gore, actor Leonardo DiCaprio and elected officials from the US and abroad joined this march, which was one of 2,000 held around the world. What were they protesting?
These people were united for one great cause and it is one we should all be concerned about.
Take a look around us: we have created irreparable environmental damages to our planet, our home and our own survival. Today, more than half of Earth’s rain forests have already been lost forever to the insatiable human demand for resources and arable land. In recent years, temperatures are rising to an all-time high since the Industrial Revolution due to impacts of global warming. So when Mother Nature retaliates by unleashing freak disasters, extreme weather and diseases and infections, it is only her way of telling us that the planet has had enough; STOP!
When people gather for a common cause, they demand to let their voice HEARD. And they need your help. While many of us may not be able to participate in the Climate Change March in France this year, there is a similar gathering held in Malaysia that hopes to bring out the same message across the country.
Dubbed as THE GREEN WORLD RUN, this eco-friendly event hopes to protect the Earth and to create a greater awareness of the environmental issues happening today. THE GREEN WORLD RUN will be held on Sunday, November 29, 2015 and will feature a 5km run. This will be an important event to commemorate the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Paris, France and it will also be a prime opportunity to take a closer look at the serious issues we're facing and the solutions we need to alleviate them.
If you enjoy healthy walks and are passionate about the environment, this is the event for you. THE GREEN WORLD RUN is a 5km walk that supports our efforts to protect the Earth and to create a greater awareness of the environmental issues happening today.
We create this fun and exciting event to highlight the importance of recycling in daily life. So here’s the fun part: not only are we promoting a healthy lifestyle, we are also encouraging participants to don outfits or headgear or any accessories created using recycled materials to send out an eco-friendly message to others. This means it’s time to unleash your FUN, CREATIVE and ECO-FRIENDLY side for a good cause!
THE GREEN WORLD RUN will be held on Sunday, November 29, 2015 and will feature a 5km run. Help us to raise awareness by participating in THE GREEN WORLD RUN this year!
*Note- No dogs will be allowed to run. No bottled water will be provided for environmental reasons. Please bring your own drinking water for the race.
