“The aim is for participants to be able to get to the demonstration easily by public transport. STIB also wants to show that it takes action for the climate together with its staff, not only on 10 October but also every other day of the year,” the announcement reads.
Participants in the march will gather at the North Station at 1:00 PM before leaving for the Cinquantenaire Park, aiming to reach it by around 6:00 PM.
