More than 2800 cities in 170 countries were involved, including many German ones like Berlin, Munich and Ulm. Everywhere in the world a lot of ambassadors for climate justice were present demonstrating for a better future. All demonstrations contributed to the biggest climate-demonstration of all time, called the People’s Climate March.
