Climate rally on Friday at KCC

A “Global Climate Strike” is set for 1 p.m. Friday at Kauai Community College. It will be one of hundreds of such gatherings around the world that day. The intention is to raise awareness about the need for global and local climate action.

Organizers say their goals include:

• Asking Mayor Derek S.K. Kawakami to sign the climate emergency declaration;

• Encouraging community members to take action on the county’s six sustainability goals that include clean energy, waste reduction, local food production, smart planning, natural resource management, and green workforce and education;

• Asking global leaders at the United Nations to recognize that the world is in the midst of a climate crisis.

At 11:30 a.m. people will gather in front of KCC for a highway cleanup. At 1 p.m., a rally will be held at the campus entrance. At 3 p.m. there will be a bike convoy to the mayor’s office to present the climate emergency declaration.
