Want to break some records going green this Saturday? Be part of the world’s first Flash Mob for the Earth!

At 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 24, an environmental tidal wave will be unleashed on the city of Boston. Participants wearing and waving green will send three surges of noise and movement up and down Columbus Avenue – all in support of, a Moving Planet worldwide rally demanding action on the climate crisis.

The Green Trade Association (GTA) and its sister organization, Massachusetts Green Jobs Coalition (MAGJC), are inviting Bostonians to be part of this record-breaking initiative at the Berklee Beantown Jazz Festival. We’re especially interested in those willing to become Flash Mob Volunteers, helping others to participate.


Rally: Elected Officials, Speakers
Assembly Time: 1:30 p.m.
Assembly Point: Columbus Ave. next to Ruggles Station
What to Wear: Anything green! Hats, scarfs, Celtics shirts, a costume covered in green leaves – we’re going to turn Columbus Avenue into a carpet of color.
What to Bring: Something green to wave in the air. Pennants, flags, signs or homemade puppets – creativity welcomed!
