UCT's Prof Mark New joined Cape Town's climate activists who took part in a Climate Impacts Day in May, a global day of protest initiated by the international climate campaign 350.org to highlight the plight of those affected by extreme weather events caused by climate change. The Cape Town protest involved groups such as the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa, AfriOceans Warrior, and Creating Change. The groups took their protests to Table Mountain, Lion's Head and Tulbagh Square.
