Following the cancellation of the Paris Climate March amid security fears, the climate community did what they've long been asking the international community to do: adapt to a changing environment. What would have been tens of thousands of feet marching on the streets of Paris transformed into 10,000 empty shoes at Place de la République, as well as a creative action, known as the Human Chain.
Demonstrators formed a single-file human chain to mark the site of the original Paris Climate March route. Below is a series of photos I took from the demonstration.
Back at the hostel, our delegation swapped biscuits and stories about the march. It was only then that I realized that my experience of the Human Chain was markedly different to the rest of the delegation—read Flo’s recount in a coming blog post.
