Children to lead climate change march through city.

CHILDREN are set to lead a climate change march through Newcastle.

The North East Climate Action group will meet on Sunday at Princess Square and march up Northumberland Street for a rally at the Civic Centre.

Sandy Irvine, member of North East Climate Action, said children would be leading the march as it is they who are most affected by climate change. He said: "It is future generations who will pay the most grievous price if our generation does not halt climate change. There can be no doubt that climate change is the biggest issue of our lifetimes. Climate change is posing direct questions for decision-makers. They range from divestment from fossil fuels to a moratorium on unsustainable developments such as open cast coal mining."

Organisers have said the march is being held in solidarity with those attending the critical United Nations talks in Paris. The conference will aim to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world
