22,000 pairs of shoes replace the prohibited Climate March in Paris for COP21

2015-11-30 // unusual

It’s the symbol that we will remember from yesterday. While the March for Climate in Paris was canceled following the attacks of November 13, 2015, volunteers from all over France, but also from Belgium, have installed 22,000 pairs of shoes on the Place de la République, which was the starting point of the March for Climate. On the sidelines of the COP21, this beautiful symbol of determination that drives citizens brought together more than four tons of shoes collected in one week, in order to cover a large part of the Place de la République. This is Avaaz, the movement of citizen mobilization, which is the origin of this initiative.
