CAFOD supporters will gather for a rally to call for leaders at COP28 to act before a short march to Trafalgar Square

CAFOD supporters will be joining calls for leaders at COP28 to commit to urgent action on the climate crisis at a march in London on Saturday 9 December.

Where and when will the COP28 march start in London?

We're going to meet at 11.50am at St James's Square, SW1Y 4LE. This is next to the office of BP, one of the world's largest fossil fuel companies.

COP28 London march

Start date

St James' Square, London, SW1Y 4LE

What's the plan for the COP28 march in London?

A large march calling for a ceasefire in the war in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory is now going to be taking place in London on the same day as we gather to call for leaders at COP28 to act on the climate crisis.

As a result of this taking place, the route for the COP28 march is going to be shorter than originally planned:

  • Once we meet at St James's Square at 11.50am, we'll hold a moment to gather with people from different faith and belief groups to pray or reflect on the need for leaders to act at COP28. 

  • There will then be a rally taking place outside BP to call for governments to stop supporting fossil fuels.

  • Following the rally, there will be a short march that will end just before 2pm at Trafalgar Square, with many people taking part in the climate march going on to join the Palestine march.

Praying for action at COP28

Along with our friends at Christian Aid and Tearfund, we've written a set of prayers that we will say when we meet outside BP.

If you're unable to join us in person to call for leaders to act at COP28, you can say these prayers with us from wherever you are in the world.
