Watch live: Climate protesters march in Brussels as Cop28 continues

The ‘great’ climate march returned to the streets of Brussels today (3 December), to coincide with Cop28 taking place in the UAE.

Hundreds of climate activists marched in demand of politicians coming down hard on their pledges towards planet-friendly initiatives.

Today’s conference is Health Day, and saw governments outline the Climate Relief, Recovery and Peace Declaration, which will ensure finance for communities threatened or affected by fragility or those directly impacted by climate change who do not currently have funding to combat it.

Brussels’ march, organised by the Climate Coalition, set off from Brussels-North station at 12:30 local time, and finished at the Esplanade du Cinquantenaire.

The theme of the march was “every tenth of a degree counts”, highlighting just how big of a difference every small change can make in fighting climate change.
