With the end of the year in sight, it is time for record lists. This year, again, the climate records have been broken – quite negative records, that is. 2020 was the hottest year ever measured.

Action

Climate activists put pressure on the people in power to act. Sometimes these are disruptive actions, sometimes more playful. The Extinction Rebellion branch in Deventer put pressure on the City Council in a playful way; the activists braved the cold of December to portray a summer scene. Summer clothes, bathing suits, umbrellas and beach balls were taken to the square in front of the town hall. The purpose of the demonstration was to get the municipality to declare a climate emergency. Make policies to combat global warming before we can sit outside your town hall door in swimwear all year round!

Het Actiefonds sponsored a new microphone and speakers to give some extra strength to these and future actions of XR Deventer. View the photos below.
