TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Local residents gathered Friday to draw attention to climate change.

On Friday evening a group called the Earthlings marched Friday for climate change awareness and the reduction of carbon footprints. Earthlings is a group of young adults that worked with the Terre Haute City Council to pass a resolution that recognized the severity of climate change.

The group walked from the Vigo County Public Library to the Courthouse, holding signs related to climate change awareness.

Co-leader Brendan Corcoran said climate change needs to be taken seriously.

“Get involved locally. Educate our community. Generate some momentum in order to get Terre Haute, the Wabash Valley, neighboring communities to start taking the environment seriously,” Corcoran said.

If anyone is interested in joining the group, the group meets at 7th and Wabash every Friday from 4:00 to 4:30 P.M.
