A March to Raise Awareness for Global Warming, Organized by Protect Our Winters
Do your part for the On-Snow community! If we don’t stand up and use our voice to protect winter and the winter sports we cherish, who will? POW was founded on the idea that the collective power of the winter sports community is massive, and if we can all work together, the end result can be revolutionary. Together We Can Protect Our Winters!!!
We’ll be joining our friends at Protect our Winters for their march on Sunday, September 21st to raise global warming pollution awareness.
Please join us for the People’s Climate March in NYC to stand united with thousands to peacefully flood the streets in record numbers, raise our voices and urge global leaders at the UN to support a global agreement to reduce global warming pollution.
Protect our Winters, was founded by Jeremy Jones in 2007. After having been turned away from areas that had once been ride-able and seeing resorts closed due to lack of snow, Jeremy saw a gap between the winter sports community and the action being taken by us all to address the problem. Since it’s founding, Jeremy has been able to take these real issues to greater heights than ever imagined, earning him a nod as a 2013 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, and his environmental advocacy work with Protect Our Winters won him recognition as one of President Barack Obama’s 2013 Champions of Change.
Protect Our Winters has since become the environmental center point of the global winter sports community, united towards a common goal of reducing climate change’s effects on our sports and local economies.
This will be the largest climate march in history and with all of us standing together, the snow sports community will have it’s place in this massive movement. We hope you can join us, along with Protect our Winters, their athletes, members and friends for what promises to be a day that makes a difference!
