 A Walk for Climate Justice

We have entered a new era that demands global solidarity in order to fight climate change and ensure that pursuit of sustainable human development remains at the fore of the global community’s efforts.”— Yeb Saño in Warsaw November 11, 2013

On October 2, 2014, International Day of Non-Violence, along with Philippine Climate Commissioner Naderev Yeb Saño, environmental activist Alan Burns, an Englishman living in North Carolina, joined the Climate Walk for Justice with Filipinos on a 1,000 kilometer walk from Luneta Park in Manila. After 40 days, the walkers would cross San Juanico Bridge, arriving in Tacloban on November 8 – anniversary of Typhoon Hayian, the world’s strongest storm ever to make landfall, bringing the reality of climate change to TV screens around the world for weeks. This is his story.

The ultimate goal of the Walk for the Climate is to inspire people around the world and encourage world leaders to take urgent ambitious action to confront the climate crisis. The Walk highlighted the impacts of climate change on vulnerable countries like the Philippines. Specifically, the walk is intended to drive momentum for grassroots social action and provide the push for countries to finalize a fair, equitable, ambitious and durable climate agreement during the climate negotiations in Paris in 2015.
