    The People's Climate March that will take place on September 21 in New York City will create a tipping point for the world, a statement on the event's website said.

    MOSCOW, September 16 (RIA Novosti) - The People's Climate March that will take place on September 21 in New York City will create a tipping point for the world, a statement on the event's website said.

    "The People's Climate March can be – and in many ways already is – creating a tipping point moment for the world," the statement read. "There's real power in this kind of human energy."

    The website points out the importance of the campaign as it is expected to be the biggest of 2,200 similar events around the world, during which people will be taking to the streets, expressing their concerns about climate change.

    The march is also devised as part of a build-up to the Paris climate negotiations in 2015 and is to arrive right before the UN Climate Summit on September 23 and shortly after the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer on September 16.

    The march's participants also hope to attract media attention to their action and the issue they are urging the world leaders to start solving.

    "The People's Climate March is going to be HUGE. So huge that mainstream media outlets around the world won't be able to ignore it. People everywhere will be reading it in their papers, blogs, social media feeds and more!" the statement added.

    The march will see the collaboration of New York community groups and international nongovernmental and faith organizations, with more than 1,000 of them partnering on the action. They include businesses, unions, religious groups, environmental groups, social justice groups, schools and other bodies.
