What will happen at the Galway event?
Absolutely everybody is welcome! We want to this event to be fun and lively like a carnival so we invite all street performers, drummers, musicians and singers to come along so we make as big an impact as possible. We will gather at Eyre Square (in front of 'The Skeff') from 12:30pm and leave at 1pm and make our way down Shop Street and Quay Street to the small square in front of the Galway City Museum (behind the Spanish Arch).
ELEMENTS (so far!)
- It is a carnival so we are encouraging people to dress up (if they'd like to)
- Main banner at front, Transition Galway banner somewhere behind that and other banners welcome
- Placards with slogans already on them and blank placards for people to put their own slogans on them between 12:30pm and 1pm
- Face-painting on participants (between 12:30pm and 1pm)
- Singing: as people gather (12:30pm - 1pm), teaching people a song people are invited to sing during the march (see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OxJV-l8UJc&feature=share - we will have photocopies of lyrics on the day), singing during march and at end.
- Team of Drummers: drumming before, during and at end of march
- Flyers to hand out to people who see the march
- Short speeches at end of march from representatives of local NGOs
This event is part of the Global Climate March. On November 30th, world leaders meet in Paris to start negotiating the next global climate deal. That's why, the day before, people around the world will take to the streets and push leaders at every level of government to commit to 100% clean energy. Together, we can push the world towards a climate deal that gets us off dirty energy and unleashes clean energy for all. Let's make history
