"Thousands" will attend climate protests
Australia will lead a day of international climate protests calling on world leaders to cut the planet's pollution and deliver a climate deal in December.
More than 170 countries are taking part in today's demonstration, with more than 3,000 events planned around the world.
Protesters are concerned that world leaders, including Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, have not delivered strong enough emissions targets to avoid runaway climate change.
The day of protests kicks off in Australia with thousands expected to attend more than 230 events organised across the country.
