PHOTOS: Costa Ricans march against climate change

November 29, 2015

Costa Rica joined more than 150 countries around the world that held marches against climate change this past weekend. A march in downtown San José gathered some 100 people on Sunday, a day before the inauguration of major climate change talks in Paris, officially called the 21st Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, or COP21.

Members of different organizations, like the Central American Regional Association for Water and the Environment (ARCA) and cycling promotion group ChepeCletas, participated in the march.

“People from all over the world are getting together today, a day before COP21 starts, to tell world leaders that we want serious decisions and and real compromise to stop the planet’s temperature rise,” said ARCA director Jorge Mora Portuguez.

The march started in Parque España in San José, and ended at the University of Costa Rica.
