Precisely for this reason, it is important that the turnout is high this weekend, says Janssen, who will appear dressed in his robes on Saturday with scientists from other universities. “It is important for people to understand that climate is not only a problem of the future, but disruption is already well underway in large parts of the world, and will soon become a problem for everyone.”

However, Morin believes the number of people speaking out is increasing. “People are also seeing the consequences more and more: like this summer when floods, wildfires and extreme heat became the norm.”

Gerrit Schaafsma, a doctoral candidate in the field of climate change and civil disobedience, thinks so too. “I see a lot of enthusiasm around the business. My gut says there will be a big turnout on Saturday. Moreover, more people often come when the sun is shining.”
