The silent vigil will take place on Howard Street, opposite the Millenium Gallery and organisers say everyone is welcome to attend.

An event spokesperson said: “Sir David King, former Chief Scientific Advisor to the UK Government, said “What we do, I believe, in the next 3-5 years will determine the future of humanity.”

“So we felt moved to vigil, to stand or sit in the street, and silently bear witness to the urgency of this situation.”

This launch event, during which leaflets will be given out, will be the next event in what organisers hope will be a regular vigil for the climate.
