Louisville climate activists will rally on Wednesday as part of a larger national climate day of action.

The national group People’s Climate Movement has designated Wednesday as a day of action, and the Louisville march and rally will tie with it.

Mark Steiner of the Louisville non-profit Cultivating Connections said climate change issue should concern every person, even if the topic is complex.

"Our future clearly is dependent on our ability to deal with these climate issues," Steiner, one of the organizers of the Louisville march and rally.

Steiner said this year is particularly important because world powers will gather in Paris in December to discuss international climate change action. He said he hopes Wednesday’s event will “call attention to this particular moment in history when our awareness and the work towards climate seem to be reaching a certain peak, if you will.”

The march will begin on Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. at Sixth Street and Broadway and will end with a rally at 5:30 p.m. at Metro Hall. A similar event will also be held in Frankfort.
